About to mantle and topout.

Description 

Starts to the left of "The Specialist". Sit start to a small ledge work your way up into a mantle and top out.

Protection 

Two crashpads and a spotter should do. Watch your head on the pointy rock under the problem. It is not called Skullcracker for nothing.

Cracked my head on the pointy rock in Skullcracker yesterday, spotters are required for the roll out of a fall. That rock wins in the brain bucket vs. hard rock battle.

Or you could toss a pad on the namesake rock?

Felt harder than V2, but maybe that was the Christmas sloth talking. Really fun.

Bring a dedicated pad for the pointy rock (in addition to the one for the problem itself).
