This route climbs the obvious thin crack just to the left of Lonesome Scenery. You can spot the anchor slings from the road, and there is a bolt protecting the crux about 15 feet off the deck. The crux involves tenuous liebacking off of a sharp, crimpy, varnished edge protecting the crack in the dihedral. The climbing gets easier as you get higher up the route and can get good finger locks in the crack.


This route is around 100 feet right of Scenic Byway, and 10 feet left of Scenic Highway.


Small gear, aliens and nuts, plus a quickdraw for the bolt.

The route is easy to find because of the bolt. It's a great route. The bolt protects the opening crux moves, which involve finding your way up a 00 tips crack. From then on, it's fingers all the way (purple metolious - yellow), with the occasional larger pod. The top 25-30 feet is fantastic fingers with lots of varnished edges for crimps and feet.

You can lead the 5.8 to the right and traverse to the anchors above this route to TR it. Cheers, Sep 15, 2014

Not a great route, but ok. Pretty hard move by the bolt leads to significantly easier climbing though nothing on this route is crack climbing. It's all super thin gear, nothing bigger than .3 camalot fits. Triples in green and red c3 with a couple purples and .3s. Mar 22, 2015
Interesting line. The crux is off the bolt. Careful gear placing after that until the crack widens and you can place bigger pieces. Nov 3, 2017
