Steve heading into Scorpion .
Road & nearby private property MORE INFO >>>


Scorpion and an unamed route to its right use the same three starting bolts, diverging at the 4th bolt. Climbing begins a few feet right of Point of Entry and a bit left of center in the overhang. Pumpy, powerful, and equipped with big holds interspersed with crisp, diminishing crimps. Fight your way left past the 4th bolt to the lip above saving an extra ounce of juice to get in natural gear passing the lip.


QD, a few Friends or Camalots, and a 60 m rope.
