Description 

Mr. Clean is just that, clean. This corner protects well with good movement for 50 feet and then comes a fun little roof. This was actually my first trad lead and I still can't get enough of it, absolutely one of my favorite routes in the Refuge.


Location 

This route is one the left side of Lower Scott. Basically, in between Tea cup Arete and Layway Plan. No fixed anchors.


Protection 

Gear up to #2 Camalot, this thing will take a wide variety of pro

I have to agree with Andy, it is the best 5.8 lead in the refuge.

This route definitely takes a #4 camalot in the mid section of the route. Turning the roof, I use a #3. Just a heads up.
