Scoop Mantle

FA: John Kear and Lance Hadfield?
New Mexico > Jemez Mountains… > Ponderosa Bould… > Satellite > Pinball Simulator Area

Description

The crux is getting out of the pool. An eliminate, the huge pocket on the left that the Scoop Right jumps to is off.

Start with the left on the right edge of the scoop and the right on a sidepull underling. Step onto the wall and move up to the sloping lip. Mantle. Could be started from a sit on the arete down and right, this would probably add a grade.

Location

Just to the right of the Scoop starting from a high start.
