Description

This is a high quality line just to the left of Lego. Follow a blunt arete with bolts (1st crux) to hand crack and mini roof. The second crux fires through the steep face above. Once you find the sequence (it took me 4-5 tries), the moves are straight forward. The upper plated face is protected with small to large nuts. A great climb...

Location

Scraps is located on the west face just left of Lego.

Protection

4-5 bolts, blue alien to #1 camalot, good selection of nuts...

Bottom and middle crux are bolt protected. Gear sections are maybe 5.9 or so. Sport climbers with a few cams and nuts can go for this one. Jun 20, 2016

The boulder problem to get to the 2nd bolt is brutal. Things ease up quite a bit until the patina headwall. Those 2 bolts on there are the last you get, make sure you have some medium nuts for the patina up high or you'll be floating a ways above your last bolt...
You can place up to a #2 in the crack section. Sep 26, 2011
