4 out of 5 stars variation

The original line traverses up and right to easier crack just inside of skyline arete. We climbed straight up broken cracks to anchor, this felt more difficult, like 10a.

4 out of 5 stars fa

the first pitch is a nice warm up dihedral to the top of the pillar, lean across to clip the anchors. the second pitch was pretty exciting and we didn't know if the cracks would link up with enough pro- nor were we sure how solid the holds were- both turned out good

First pitch crack/dihedral @5.6 great for beginner trad lead. Anchors on wall across gap are quite high and make for awkward belay on top of pillar. Also bolts not suitable for rap from that point. Second pitch face crack systems are very scrambled. Keep your eye on chains above for best route.
