This route goes up the overhanging arête of the boulder closest to skull rock. It has good hand holds that are very sharp. Footholds are mainly slick and sloping with a few edges for heel hooking. The start goes from a standing start to a an easy move to a small jug and then a larger move to a big jug. Footwork is difficult and you have to math feet and heel hook. The crux is the next move in which you have to pull up, lock off, and reach or dyno to another jug. The trick is to keep your feet on the rock. From there it is easy to the top. Excellent climb, pumpy, lots of big moves and delicate footwork. However the jugs are super sharp and shred your skin. There are other much harder routes up the boulder. A sit start would make this much more difficult. Bring a brush to clean the holds!
