Description

A hard start leads to some cool movement up a thin crack. After about 30', move into the crack 5' to the left (crux), then move right through the up-right leaning crack section for a few feet, and then up and left again. Although the gear looks thin, it is a safe lead on gear. Climb nearby route/Skyline P1 to set up TR anchor (3-4" gear). Ends on top of Skyline P1.

Location

1st left leaning crack left of Skyline Start.

Protection

Small gear; micro cams and small nuts, a few hand and finger sized pieces. Build an anchor on the step where crack finishes (to TR, 3-4" gear anchor) or continue up the 15' step to top of Skyline P1 and sling a boulder/clip the fixed anchor for Skyline chimney descent.

Rappel from rings to the south. 60m rope makes it.

Quite safe lead! No need for special gear either. Jun 26, 2017
