Powerful boulder problem through the roof and arete. Very similar to Atomic Slap. Though the rock is a little ricey, it shouldn't be dismissed. Rock quality would improve with more traffic. Just like other Skinner (or Piana) routes it's a thrilling lead, especially getting to the last bolt. The route did not have anchors before, so I installed some (fall '11) to make it safer and TR possible.


Located on the far right side of the major SW facing corner. Steepest climb of the formation.


Bolts. Chain anchors. Might want gear for crack in the start, or a stick clip.
