Description

Climb the small face to the right of the arete to a ledge. Then follow the crack going up and right. Finish up at the end of Foolish or up the gully that preceds it.

Location

Climb the crack/corner to left of Foolish. Three faults that you can follow. Trending to the right, over to the top out of Foolish. The middle fault has good pro and climbs as expected. The left most straight up fault is the hardest option with the worst gear of the three.

Protection

Gear to a #3 Cam, no anchor.

I led this route over the weekend. I stayed in the crack the entire way. When I neared the top, someone asked me what route I was on, but when I told them, they said I was actually finishing on Foolish. Does this route finish on the crack or finish on the to the left of the crack? Oct 17, 2010

Scott, I have always finished up the crack, same finish as Foolish. Looking at the new book, Tony has the route going straight up, so no I wonder if I've never really done this route the right way. Dec 20, 2010

I'm a newcomer to WWR, but I suspect the map in Oklahoma Select is wrong. I think this route finishes in the crack, same as Foolish. That's how we climbed it. That's how y'all climbed it. That is the natural line. The path marked in the book looked very thin and poorly protected. May 21, 2012

We did this route this past weekend. Good, fun, clean protectable route. Seems like there is some confusion on the finish. Looking straight up from Arm Bar you see three cracks to top out on. The left most crack is wack, thin and runs out not very protectable (I think this is what the guide book has which is not right). The center line is 5.6 and solid which we believe is where to top out on. Finishing to the right you top out on Foolish. Stay center straight up the crack. Sep 14, 2015

I've updated this route description. Good points. I agree, I think Oklahoma Select has this route misplaced. The old Lohn guide describes the original route going up to finish up at Foolish, or the gully before it. I like to remember that Mayse solos most everything on Mount Scott, so missing a 5.6 lines not really big on his radar. ;) Sep 15, 2015
