BETA PHOTO: Full front view. Short but sweet.


This is a faint crack to a large roof 12 feet off the ground. There are great holds just above the lip to a blank face (not done as yet). The rating is a guess. This is an open project. If someone tags it, I can rename it.


It is 150 yards uphill up Skull Valley. Stay out of the bottom to avoid the poison ivy.


5 bolts, two bolt anchor.

This is a clean route. Avoid the right edge, and it's 12ish.

About .10c if you don't eliminate holds.
