Description Suggest change

Because this route is so close to many of the classic lines at Poke-O, it is often over-looked. Don't miss this one!

Scallion is a full- value route. It involves some unprotected, but relatively easy climbing (5.6 R) to begin the route, some Houdini corner moves protected by two bolts, then some of the finest moderate crack climbing on the cliff.

If you are shorter than 5.7, the moves entering the corner and clipping the first bolt may feel a little difficult, so be thoughtful. However, a truck green Camalot placement in a horizontal below the right-facing corner helps ease off some of the jitters.

The route ends at a bolt anchor.

Location Suggest change

About 300 feet the left of the giant Thunderhead Roof is a clean, bottomless right-facing corner that starts approximately 15 feet off a grassy ledge.

Protection Suggest change

Two bolts, and a full rack of small gear. Doubles are helpful and the addition of one red Camalot.
