Wade Forrest on the FA

Description 

The Scythe and Rusty Blade are presently the first lines you will encounter while walking up to the Main Wall. It follows a black streak system to a conspicuous right trending crescent crack feature.

Start off on slabby, juggy terrain to reach a high first bolt at 20'. Scamper past jugs and several "Peaks Crag" style mantel moves throughout the middle section.

The scythe shaped crack feature is the hard bit though some jamming skill, countless foot moves, and some perseverance here will get you through this hard to read section. Then enjoy very cool, juggy stemming to the top. Good stone throughout.

Location 

Left side, Main Wall.

Protection 

Bolts and fixed biner anchor.
