Through the crux, heading to the thank god ledge.


Climb out the left side of the steep roof. Two cruxes. Hardest move is right after bolt 3. Then pull under the next roof and fire out the left corner for the big ledge (redpoint crux). The mantle onto the ledge is touchy and exposed. It's not difficult but the bolt is a ways below your feet. Walk across the ledge and climb past one more bolt to the chains. Shares chains with Mac Daddy and Fire in the Belly.


Middle of the Skunk Cave. Third route from the Left. See beta pic in area description.


6 bolts to chains

This route doesn't get enough love, but it's one of the best 12s at Dierkes.
