Interesting start, offwidth up front with fists deeper in there . . not quite vertical w/some holds on the lips of the crack further up. More effort than other Mt. Scott 5.6's


Left route on the wall.

I'll agree that this 5.6 does not resemble the other 5.6's on Mt. Scott. By far, this the most difficult of the one's I've climbed, and it's not even close. There are some foot placements low on the crack, but, if you don't have long arms, the deep jams are difficult. It's easy to set up a top rope for all the climbs on Dreamboat Annie: Boulders for anchors abound at the top of the climb.
