Climb the face to the right of "Easy Skankin'". I couldn't find any 5.10c on this route.


Pro to 1".

Two bolt anchor at top.

two bolt anchor at top.

Taking the obvious direct line up to the top anchor, there's a fairly "blank" section of the face for about 9-10 feet / 3 meters which seemed pretty hard for 10c.
(the 4th edition print guidebook calls it 10b, which seemed way out of sync with the 10a next to it -- or maybe the print guide has in mind some "approved" sequence around one side with some features that are "on" the route).
. (or maybe I was just not seeing something, or was too tired).

Otherwise some interesting face moves -- with thinner holds than the 10a to the right. Good slab climbing practice, if that's what you want.
