Easy climbing off the ground leads to a hard, crimpy crux. Finish just to the right of the anchors and then traverse to chains.


Far right route in the Skunk Cave. See beta pic in area description.


Bolts to chains

This route says right of chains but doesn't give you a feel for how right you go. It was enough that my wife didn't want to follow the holds up as it would be a good sized sideways swing for the follower. In my opinion this would be a better route with the chains placed 6 to 8 ft. to the right.
