Two crux sections of this route starting with the boulder start up large hueco with second crux midway as you ascend a bulge section.

Follow bolt line crossing over two other formation/sections of rock to what appears to be a new shut anchor which does not appear in book. Possibly two exits?


Route starts on mid-crag pinnacle under large hueco.


9 bolts to west facing shut anchors which are accessed by ledge.

This is a fantastic route and my favorite (so far) on Boyscout Wall. The climb is broken into three sections, all with their own respectable crux. This route demands the lead climber to execute a variety of technique. Fun, fun! Mar 16, 2009

The Southern California Sport Climbing book labels this route as Make a Way (763). The route name Three Giant Steps (764) would make much more sense, I am assuming MP is correct. May 5, 2009

The MP one is correct. The SoCal book has a fair number of errors in it.

This beta photo is correct also:… May 5, 2009

Definitely start at the huecos as the pictures show. I didn't know and started to the right in the crack's smooth wall area and I had a tough time getting up.

Also, short people may have a hard time reaching for the fourth bolt while standing on the first "step." There weren't positive footholds at the base of the second "step," so I had to stand high on my toes to reach in clip in the quickdraw.

Otherwise, tough but great climb. Dec 26, 2013
