Description

This seldom-climbed route is really quite nice if you appreciate a "first ascent experience" (dirt and lichen). The cruxes are low and not easily protected.

P1: 5.7 PG Follow the crack behind the tree about 15 feet to a stance (crux 1). Continue up past right-pointing flakes. From the top flake, traverse left about 20 feet on small holds with little pro (crux 2), until you can move up to the small roof. Pull the roof at a weakness or traverse back right to go around. Establish a gear anchor above, or just link P2.(100 ft.)

P2: 5.4 PG Climb up and stay to the right of the trees in the left-facing corner. Follow the least-licheny path to the GT. You'll finish just below P3 of Maria (obvious link-up) (80 ft.)

Location

Walk right from below the main Maria corner until you see a large tree growing up on a bouldery ledge. Route starts behind tree. (see
Start of Scungilli )

Descent: Walk left on the GT to Maria rappel station.

Protection

Standard rack.

Not recommended for beginning 5.7 climbers. Tricky to protect leader and second on P1 traverse. Watch rope drag. May 26, 2014
