Description

This famous overhanging off-width is rated Australian 23, which I think is 5.11d. I haven't done it myself, just watched climbers on the route, but posted this because I have lots of photos of the climb. If someone has more information, please add it!

Location

Kama Sutra starts directly above Scorpion Corner; in fact, one can link Scorpion Corner and Kama Sutra. Also, you can scramble to the ledge from which Kama Sutra starts, next to Scorpion Crack.

Protection

Nuts, cams. There are rappel anchors at the top of the bluff.

Dom - thanks. I knew Henry had climbed the route, but not that he'd done the first ascent. Oct 29, 2014
