Routes in Scenic Rock

Description

A cool boulder with two classic Carter problems on its south face- South Line (V4) and Standard Route (V3). Each of these are among the best problems of their grade at Carter.

Getting There

Thanks for the info Brett. Not that it really affects the grade, but we were beginning this on the jug right of the pocket, just to add another logical move and maybe a little extra pump. Also try starting far left side and traversing right and finish on standard; same crux but slightly easier for some reason. Apr 2, 2009

Jordan, according to the older guide book by Bob Horan, it's called "Scenic Traverse" and goes at B1+/B2, which I think translates to somewhere between V5 and V7. On his diagram of the rock, it looks like he has the traverse starting at about the mid-level pocket. Hope this helps. Mar 25, 2009
Anybody have a name/rating for the right to left traverse beginning right of the hueco, moving through south line, and finishing on juggy holds on the far left arete? Good holds, bad feet, very technical. Seems harder than 5.12. I'd peg it at V6+ but who knows? Also, there is a hard sit-start on the left side beginning on an undercling then a big move up to a high right gaston or pissy left crimp. Mar 10, 2009
Yes, I love this boulder. There are two more climbs on it. On the far Left is a V-2, go straight up the left overhanging arete. Secondly, there is a 5.12 traverse going right to left, the top is out. The V-4 on this rock is one of my favorites. Sep 24, 2003
