Tons 'a fun. Start hugging the rock and follow the right edge of the scoop.


Just above Bolt Rock on an adjacent boulder, this climbs an obvious arete feature right of a scoop.


A pad or two and a spot, it is good not to fall when you are topping out.

We always knew of it as "The One Hand Slap" or "The Sound of One Hand Slapping". Dec 12, 2010

Luke, That's called The Scoop V6. Got it from Brent Edens (if memory serves), not sure if it had seen an ealier ascent, but that's what he called it. Don't you have the new guide? Feb 17, 2011

Is there another variation listed for this problem, to start lower with a dime-edge for the right hand then work up to the "starting sloper"? I've done it a couple times, definitely makes it a hard V2 or Good V3 I think. Sep 6, 2011
