BETA PHOTO: Skyshine: The route currently ends at rap rings.
Seasonal Raptor Closure MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Skyshine currently ends at rap rings about 60 feet up where a crack peters out. The route will be extended in the future, but the anchors will be left to provide a nice moderate trad route.

Climb past a low bolt and mantle onto a column top. Climb a fun, right-leaning corner crack from there. Don't worry about what looks like an off-width pod halfway up. There's a huge jug that lets you bypass it without any nastiness. The crack is all fingers and hands.


Location 

Once at the base of the Main Wall, turn left. Skyshine starts off the ramp leading to the ledge below the left side of the wall.


Protection 

Great protection. A light rack of TCUs up to a #1 Camalot is fine. 1 bolt at the start.
