Description 

The Left side of OW has a huge boulder that provides access to a couple of routes on the left. Skills is the second or third of these. My notes from 1998 indicate a funky first clip followed by powerful steep climbing on excellent stone. A nasty little note suggests that I should get my tail back up here and get a clean red point ("straightforward, just pumpy. Do it."). Bob also has a pair of more moderate routes on the right side of OW that were terrific as well. As I recall Skills seemed pretty long and did not offer much rest.


Protection 

Eight to ten draws and a rope.

Believe the description. THIN crux just above midway, then little rest afterward. Great line, solid for the grade.
