Description

No climbing area should be considered complete without the chance, at least once, to wrestle an [alligator]. On Scout Rock, the chance arises with Rawhide. Begin Rawhide approximately 75 feet North of the road up the drainage that marks the West end of Scout Rock. Rawhide is the obvious, wide chimney on the main crag forming the right hand side of the drainage. The problems begin after the third clip and involve a very wide stem (!) and three clips leading into the crux. A one-move-wonder mantle delivers the 5.11c crux at the fourth bolt and a chance to chill before launching into the squeeze chimney. Two stars for the bullet proof rock, variety of climbing, and the continuous fight.

Protection

QDs only. This 85 foot route needs about 10 draws and a 60m rope. There is a three bolt anchor at the top that allows for a convenient top rope and minimal rope drag.
