This is effectively a continuation of the Upper Tier. A pleasant escape from the crowds at the main edge, particularly the further left you go. Smaller (8 to 20m), but open, quick drying and less worn, the Skyline is well worth a few visits with excellent micro-routes on superb rock. Recommended routes include Slab and Arete (S), Safety Net (E1), Acid Drop (E4), San Melas (E3), Entropy's Jaw (E5), Wings of Unreason (E4), Track of the Cat (E5) and Art Nouveau (E6). Quality bouldering areas include Doxey's Pool and the miniaturesque Very, Very Far Skyline.

Getting There 

Continue past the Upper Tier to a inclined path on to the top.

Bold, technical, implausible climbing on perfect rock: a Roaches classic. Wings takes a central line up the slab, past some curious crucial pockets.The undercut start is the crux, with a hard rockover move to gain the slab. Easier but unprotected moves up and left gain a pocket and gear (BD #1). Rock up to gain a standing position in the pocket, from which you can look longingly at the top. A wild dyno gives you the extra inches required, and a big rush!...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
