Description 

Use small crimps and small left-facing corner to pull the first couple bouldery moves up to overhang. Pull overhang up to a small right-facing flake and up to ledge. Climb straight past small, right-facing, slanted corner to top. The whole route stays fairly parallel to Skink

Location 

A few feet right and down from the start of Skink. Starts directly under the small overhang created by the large left-facing flake of Skink

Protection 

TR recommended. If you don't redirect the double bolted anchor, then watch for swing at the start. Pro did not look too adequate at all.

FYI, this route has been "out there" (on rockclimbing.com's routes database) since 2006. "Skink Redirect", 5.10a.

But you enjoyed it, that's all that matters.

And IMO it's more 10b than 10a, especially if you stay well right of all the obvious features in the last 15 feet. The potential swing is pretty pronounced at that point as well.

Sweet, thanks Mike!

Guess I'll check some other sites before adding climbs on here.

We certainly did enjoy it!
