Description:

Several parallel left-leaning cracks and discontinuous seams are situated left of SKyline's chimney start. Start up the right crack (first crack left of SKyline chimney) then traverse left 10' to a wide diagonal crack. The route continues directly above through a swath of pink rock (11c) to awide diagonal crack. The route continues directly above to the top of the step, but a sligh zig-zag right and up along the diagonal then zag back left may be required to establish yourself in the upper crack. Small wired stoppers and gear to 2.5"

Descent Options:

Least complicated descent is to downclimb Skyline's chimney right of the route. Otherwise climb to top of Skyline's 3rd pitch and descend under Crystal Caper.

3 out of 5 stars hard

flashed but had to give it everything through the crux... weird moves, sustained, but stellar finish.
