AKA: The Lowe Project. This fine route was originally an aid route which then had bolts added to it (by Alex Lowe) making it one of longest standing free climbing projects in the canyon. This route was attempted by many 'hard' locals including Bill Dockins, Conrad Anker, Alex Lowe, and Bean Bowers, just to mention a few. Congrats Adam!!!

Begin on top of a tri-skewer like rock and climb immediately into some difficulties. The route backs off slightly until one reaches the final lieback section which is the technical crux of the route. (5.13-) A final mantle delivers one to the 2 bolt rappel anchor. one 70 meter just gets you down.


This route is located on the north face of Skyline 50 yards up hill of 'Stigmata'


The route is mostly a clip up, though some gear (up to a .5 camalot) is mandatory.
