Description

This route is the left most route on the boulder. It is a large hand crack, deep jams.

Interesting start, offwidth up front with fists deeper in there . . not quite vertical w/some holds on the lips of the crack further up. More effort than other Mt. Scott 5.6's

Location

Walk off or set up top rope/belay.

Protection

Bigger cams to #3. Only need probably 2-3 pieces of gear.

  5.6
[Hide Comment] I'll agree that this 5.6 does not resemble the other 5.6's on Mt. Scott. There are some foot placements low on the crack, but, if you don't have long arms, the deep jams are difficult. It's easy to set up a top rope for all the climbs on Dreamboat Annie: Boulders for anchors abound at the top of the climb. Nov 6, 2015
