The main route at Lower Scott, start on either side of the arete to gain great pro and climbing. Head straight up the crack and pull around a slight bulge for the crux. Continue up to Anchors on a good ledge.
The trail to the bottom of the crag was redone a couple of years ago by volunteers, thanks guys, and is much better than it used to be.
Nuts and Cams, but nothing larger than a #2 Camalot should suffice. Two bolt anchor at the top.

This is arguably the most climbed route in the Refuge. Always sees traffic because of quick access to the route, and the two bolt anchor at the top.
Plus it's a good climb....

Yowza! This climb gave me a run for my money. Took my first big lead fall on this one. Placed a yellow TCU about 3/4 up the route and had clipped it but didn't quite like it, so jamed my hand in the crack bellow and began to move up to check it out, my jam blew and I want sailing down about 20ft. I SHOULD have not fallen that far though, but my belayer was a newbie and there was a lot of drag in the tope making it hard to determine how much slack there actually was. It gave me a good scare.
The route makes you think though. It's a very sustained 5.7 and a hard 5.7 at that.

This route eats up gear. Most of the climbing is fairly easy and straight-forward. Great hands and feet. The crux is very committing and exposed but protects beautifully. Once through the crux, it's easy climbing. I definitely feel the name of this route is appropriate.
