Scorcher VI climbs the beautiful south face of the...


This beautiful panel faces due south, and so it bakes in the sun for most of the day. The line is characterized by a series of short boulder problems between several horizontal breaks on absolutely flawless stone.

Begin up on the ledge and stick clip the first bolt. Brilliant pockets work up the cinammon buttress to a ledge. Mellow crimping leads to the next horizontal break and the crux. Follow the 2-finger pockets to a long sideways move to a hidden mini-jug. There are three options for the final roof: lieback easily up the crack on the far right, climb challenging crimps to the far left, or make a big crank off a sinker mono a few feet left of the crack.


Hike ~4-5 minutes left (south) from where the approach trail meets the cliff to locate an orange wall of clean stone with an obvious bulge running the width of the cliff at 1/3 height. This is the "Tropical Wall". This line climbs the south face of the obvious detached pillar that begins from the far right end of the ledge.


5 bolts, 2 BA, a stick clip is mandatory.
