Description

A great way to finish The Great Game and top out the wall. This pitch starts from the top of that climb (see location info).

From the belay on the low angled slab, work left on easy ground clipping 2 bolts. From here, head up the arête through some thoughtful 5.10 slab moves.

The next three bolts are A0 through the overhang. Not too reachy. Once you surmount the overhang on aid you’re quickly into the crux of the pitch. Resist the urge to keep aiding and pull through the awkward, balancy mantle. Easier ground and one more bolt await you on the upper slab.

This climb has new bolts and it should be possible to pull through most of the hard moves, so get on it!

Walk off or rappel down the face with double ropes. The first rap anchor is in a chimney climber’s left of the top out and is fairly obvious.

Location

This route starts after the 4th and final pitch of The Great Game. If you make it all the way to the final anchor of that route, look left and you’ll see an anchor on the low angle slab 10 meters to your left. It’s best to belay from those bolts for Skyline Arête, so go ahead and run out the last few easy meters of The Great Game and head left to that anchor in the first place.
