DescriptionThe Scepter is the globe-shaped (when seen from afar) high point on the northwest tip of West Mountain, at the top. From here, you overlook the dam and the desert to the west. It is more or less straight uphill from the Pit Roof, though the best access is via the gully on the west side, past The Natural Forest.
This zone is also home to Fred Nicole's hyper-famous and incredibly aesthetic problem The Feather (V11), for reference.
Getting ThereHike south past the dam and around the toe of The Natural Forest, the first tall, unbroken buttress on the left (just) past the dam. A gully scramble just south of the buttress leads to a saddle atop the northwest tip of West Mountain.
From here, navigate left (northerly) through slots, slabs, caves, etc. to reach the Scepter.
