A pleasant climb that likely earned it's name from the lack of protection. Climb solid patina up the face to a fixed anchor and set a toprope for friends, or access via one of the rotues to the left
Just to the right of Serpent scales, in the darker rock, the patina creates a smoother bot more solid climb. There is a bolted anchor up top that can be reached via solo or from the top of Serpent Scales.
Really, none. A good TR.

I'm fairly certain this route has been retro-bolted and now sports 3 or 4 bolts up the middle of a wide runnel. The bolt line is right of the plates which is the obvious weakness and where most people climb. No longer an X, it's well protected and leads to two bolt anchor with rings above.
