This awesome, pocketed overhang intrigued us for years as we would pass it at the threshold of Skunk Canyon. Finally, one day we set a top-rope on it and after many tries I was able to TR it. I then returned and aid climbed it with hooks and Friends, stuffing the large cams in the fins and pockets, while systematically hand drilling the bolts for the sport set-up. I returned shortly after with Dan McQuade, who also deserves 1st ascent credit, for we both eventually persisted in accomplishing the red-point.
