Page working her way up the scoop arete


The Scoop boulder has a very obvious scoop on the south side featuring the namesake problem. The north side is TALL. There's supposed to be a classic highball V4 arete on the northeast corner. Its tall. The guide doesn't mention that the V0's and V1's on the north side are definitely highball as well.

Getting There 

From the north side of the pond, head west along the trail marked with cairns. After passing the split boulder (Reservoir Dogs) head over the ridge, southeast and continue pass two more tall boulders (one is in the guide, the other isn't) before coming to the Scoop. ~7 minutes from the car.
