BETA PHOTO: Scoop Face

Description 

Never done this one; only including it for completeness. Those that have, gave me the info on gear et al.


Location 

Climb face between Skink and the arete to the left (Scoop Arete), up past small pine tree.


Protection 

Very little gear to be found. No anchor at the top - either run a directional with the Skink anchor, or go ALL THE WAY across to the other side of the detached block for gear; use static line to reach the route.

Very nice climb, balancey, small holds but they are all there. Didn't look like well-protected for lead. For TR, use long static line or webbing to sling one of the boulders in the crevasse on top. If you stick a directional in the horizontal a foot or so below the top, you can use the same setting for Scoop Arete.

as a TR: Excellent slab/face climb, lotsa thoughtful moves.

Top-Rope straightforward to set up with a static line and wrap some slings around chockstones in top of rift break like 30ft across top to West
