Climb the right-leaning crack, down and right of "Scare Way", until the crack heads horizontally right. Continue up face to a belay ledge on "South Buttress". Follow "South Buttress to the top.
A variation moves up and left on face at about two thirds height.


Standard rack.

5.8 my ass. This climb is easily a 5.10+. After you easily place your first piece from a solid stance, you're faced with about 15 feet of flaring, crumbling, unjammable crack, surrounded by blank rock face on both sides. Awkward hands and only smearing for feet is not 5.8 territory. I had so much trouble I decided to aid climb, but my cams popped out twice because of the crumbling and flare. Gave up and climbed South Buttress to rap down (with a directional) to retrieve gear. Not recommended.

That is the description of the beginning of Scare Way.
