Boulder start


From right side of low overhanging cave boulder 10' up and left to a stance with a bolt (there are plenty of sticks afoot). Proceed up and left placing a micro-cam (offset is best)and continue on good holds to right facing corner with 6' horizontal roof. Use crack climbing technique to surmount the roof at 5.10d, 4" cam unit useful. Mind how your rope runs around the roof. Then 30' of good jam-crack lead to anchors.


Approximately half way up the Skyline south side trail. South of the middle section of the Skyline southside crags by about a 100 yards.


One bolt and Micro-cams thru 4".

We added a bolt to the start, but you still need the micro cam after that. The new Skyline descent trail is now located directly beneath. Thanks to all involved!
