This route is super fun and one of the better "scoop routes" in a place known for them. Stemming though the second scoop is wild!

Up and right on a short slab, then straight up through the first scoop, then up and left through the second scoop (crux) to a chain anchor.


A short walk downstream on the East Wall to where the creek narrows and hugs the right wall. Located just a bit down-stream of Aqua-Vulva.


Bolts & bolted anchor.


Is this the left scoop route or the right scoop route? Theres two of em, side by side. Aug 10, 2008

Actually it is the left one. Manny and I climbed the right one (Aqua-Vulva) a while back thinking it was Mulva, and I only recently found out otherwise. Aug 29, 2009

Someone told me this climb was called "Scoop Nazi". Maybe an old/new name? Awesome route regardless. Sep 14, 2009

Andrew the Scoop Nazi is located up stream, and starts atop the small pillar of Swamp Thing & Om on the Range. Sep 16, 2010

Mulva has been one of my favorite sport routes at the WW for years now. I love the "scoopness". You never know what to expect on the onsight, and it always incorporates a wide variety of movement.

Another LaFarge classic! Dec 10, 2010
For whatever it's worth I lowered the anchor on this route one bolt. It keeps you from having to finish on the last 8 feet of sand. Jul 1, 2011
This is a really wonderful and unique rout, stemming out on the first and second scoop is crazy fun! Take your shoes off when coming down, the decent will place you in the water. Sep 30, 2014
