Itchy and Scratchy

Climb up and right around the corner to a sloping ledge. Follow bolts past LOOSE rock and over a bulge to the shoulder. Then one more pin to the summit.
Note:The rock is very loose, we climbed this at 5.8, C1.
Start on the Southwest corner of the tower, at a pin.
Quick draws are all we used. Tie-offs for some of the pins. One rope for the rap.
On the summit of Crusty.

You're right Cam loose is good it keeps the crowds down.

The rock was a bit sandy, but I wouldn't call it loose. It's no worse than what's on Homer and Marge. This was a much easier tick than I expected it to be, as I was told that it was pretty scary. Easily went at 5.8 C1 (mostly I just pulled on the bolts but there were two bolts where I used aiders). Fun!
