Description Suggest change

This route is fun, but a scary lead. It's characterized by highsteps onto slopers and good smears. Located near the upper (right) end of the Indian Palisades Corridor, in the white section apparent in the picture attached.

The climb starts low and left of the first bolt, going up to it (10-), past it a ways (5.10b) and continuing up past moves of decreasing difficulty to join the anchors on Serpent Scales, a solid 2-bolt anchor on the belly of a bulge, just before 1/2 rope (0n a 60M).

The climb is fun and rewarding and gets 2 stars.

Protection Suggest change

3 bolts, with a 5.10 crux getting to the first one. The rock is only reasonably solid to that point and a fall before the first clip would be a bad idea, yet within the realm of the very possible. A TR from the anchors after leading Serpent Scales is an option as well.
