Skid Row Variation
|936 page views|
A steep roof variation, not quite as hard as it looks. The holds are there it is just a matter of getting set and making the move quickly.
2 anchors at the top of the 5.9's. There also might be anchors just above the roof. Otherwise 2 draws for the variation plus 5 more to finish on either of the 5.9's.

This route is pretty fun if you like bouldery starts. It feels V3-ish up and over the roof. It's just a matter of figuring out the sequence and moving through it efficiently. After the roof your just on a 5.9 face to the top.

That hold you're considering is as good, if not better, than it looks. Just go for it.

the start is super fun, I managed to get on this lead by accident when I first came to S-curves thinking it was choir boy or chorus line, back then I was maybe leading 5.10b's. not a long enough hard section to call it in the 11's in my opinion.

I have to agree that it seems easier than 11b. I thought it was easier than the unknown 10d next to it. As always, grades are subjective but the holds are pretty good...

I'd say 11b or a little harder if you are short (~5ft give or take). You end up on the roof with nothing but heel hooks for feet for a lot longer than taller folks who can use the lower ledge to stand.

This is pretty fun. Cool moves, but i can't for the life of me figure out why it goes at 11b... much easier...
