Description

As you arrive at Scorched earth, the trail hits the wall right in front of a pillar that has two routes on it. This route is the obvious aesthetic finger crack on the right. Easy ledges for the first 20 feet. Good fingers lead to tips with some really small face holds. After the blank face it eases up but there aren't many places for gear. Perhaps easier to just run it out to the chains if you have enough balls.

Protection

.75 camalot down low. many options here. Narrows to .3 and red and yellow C3s at the crux. bring your small pieces.

I used .75, (2).2C3, (2).1C3..gear was pretty good, anchors are not the best. Saw someone just about deck from right above the crux..big fall potential but relatively easy where it's runout. could be 5.12..or 5.11..no idea. Apr 3, 2015

I thought it felt easier but I did it on top rope to take pictures of the climb to the right of it. If I remember correctly the anchor had one very sketchy bolt on it. Feb 3, 2012
