This route follows the flake to the right of "Scorpio". It protects nicely with gear. I don't understand why the bolts were placed.


Draws, gear if you choose.

This lieback is great fun, and its ease and short stature make it perfect for beginning climbers. I agree with the original post that this ought to have been left as a gear-protected climb.

Would be 4 stars if not so short.

20 years later , I still enjoy this climb. This crack sucks up gear, some of it may be small , but the combo of edging, liebacking and jams make it solid. I just choose to not clip the bolts. I never even thought of bolting it ever! But I have thought of chopping them., I do wish it was longer.
