Description

This is a fantastic, yet somewhat sustained route that gets shade for most of the day. Some vegetation on the route, but it mostly doesn't get in the way.  Head up some intermittent cracks with lots of face holds past a couple of small trees over a distinct tannish colored bulge (crux), following more intermittent cracks and good face moves, trending just ever so slightly left through another high cruxy spot. Pass a flake system near the top to easy ground to the finish. Ends on a huge ledge, same as top of Ithaca Connection, Skyline chimney, and Crystal Caper.

Descent: Many options. Rappel from bolted anchor with TWO ropes off the south side to get all the way down. Rappel from bolted anchor with a single 70m rope off the south side and do 20’ of 5.easy down climbing. Finish Skyline. Traverse over to and finish Never On Sunday. 

Location

Starts about 100’ to the right of the red Stigmata tower on a little ledge.

Protection

Doubles from 0.3 to 0.75, single 1-3, and a full set of stoppers. Extra finger sized gear and micro cams are very good to have. Some offset cams and nuts are great. Belay options: Sling a massive boulder, or build a gear anchor.
