BETA PHOTO: Super Skink


See route photo for Super Skink: start just left of where Super Skink starts. A couple of hard moves get you off the pedestal and up to the overlap. Move left from there to the arête. Beautiful climbing up the arête to the top.


Around the corner (right) of Golden Dream -- start about 15 feet right of the arête.


Toprope from the Golden Dream bolts, with directional. It would be R/X to lead.

(comment moved from Super Skink) We did a line in May of this year just left of Super Skink that starts roughly where it does (a bit left) then up and left to reach the arête and up the arête from there. Very fun climb.
Consensus was 5.7 or 5.8. We called it "Chris' Cringe."
Has anyone done it?
Along with our party were me (Chris Moratz) my wife Hatti Langsford, David Wilkes, Marcy Bernstein, Jannette Pazer, Matt, Bodhi Densmore, and Betsy Gelvin.
If this was seemingly an FA, perhaps it could be added as its own line, definitely worth doing!

The arete (starting from the bottom of it) is "Cutting Edge" 5.8 R/X. Originally climbed on TR 3-4 years ago. Look for it in the new PK guidebook that (fingers crossed) should be out this fall.
