Description

Easier if you're tall; a big hold in the middle of the face allows a long reach to be made to a decent dish over the top, stand up and understand why it's called Scorpion - there's a sting in the tail trying to get over the lip.

Note:
Big hold has now gone which has increased the grade from V1 - small crimps now.

Location

, down and right (clockwise) from number 6. In other words from Spooky go left and around the corner, it's the route on the left of the face.

Protection

Pad, spotter.

The upper right crimp is now a positive flat two pad hold. Brings the grade back to V1. Climbs nicely, though I suspect some chipping might have been involved. The feet seem more positive, too. Aug 13, 2017

Okay. I actually think it's a better problem now. Needs to be cleaned. But the new beta is pretty wicked. Used a crimp out high right. V3 I think... Jan 24, 2011

Okay - so who tore the big crucial flake off? Looks like the route needs to be cleaned and re-climbed, at a harder grade no doubt. Jan 9, 2011
