    The Scientist 5.11a/b 6c 23 VIII- 23 E3 5c  CO : Boulder Canyon : ... : Middle
    This is a three star route that takes a direct line up the beautiful clean slab just left of "Rama" on the Plotinus Wall. Clip the first bolt and make a nice move up to the second bolt. Make a difficult move past the second bolt, then a another dicey move to reach the crack. Place the Aliens and move up over a small roof. Follow the line of bolts up the clean face to a two-bolt anchor. One of the best slab pitches in the canyon. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
