This is a Skylight area climb. It is in the next slot downhill from Chockstone Chimney. There are 2 variations. The left variation is a short, nice slab to tree rappels. The right variation is harder.
Screws and lack of brains.

This is a great route for the grade. The position and views are awesome.
The left hand route is about 60m from the base to the belay tree, so it is a full pitch.
In Feb '07 there was a middle section that was too thin to protect with screws, and there were no rock placements (not even knifeblades). I got in a pretty good cam just below this section, and there was enough ice for decent pick placements, so it was OK.
After that there is a big snow shelf and a fun steep bulge at the very top, where you'll find a tree equipped with slings and rings.

In February '06, the topout was sunhit very early, and I pulled the bulge on slush and turf sticks with no appreciable pro. Get on this one early.
