Climb up a few feet and you can place a good .5 or .75 cam in a horizontal crack or go a couple more feet and clip the first bolt off of big jugs. Going past the first bolt is the crux with easier climbing going past the second.


On the far right of Skeletal there is a short route with 4 bolts that Cronin put in a few years ago in the 5.4 range, Ear Bone is the route just right and goes to the same anchor.


Can place a cam down low but very reasonable without. Two bolts an then two closed shuts.

These two routes are I am sure the two easiest routes in Spearfish Canyon, but will be good for young or very inexperienced leaders to get on in order to get the system dialed.
