Description

To the right of Penetration, creating the open book corner, is Scratch the Surface. Start to the right on face holds climbing up and left toward a vertical seam. Place pro and trend up and left to a horizontal rail and eventually to the beginning of the two bulge finish. Use face features for the first and a thin hands crack for the second. Awesome!

Location

This is right of Penetration on the NE corner of the Blair III formation.

Protection

Thin protection down low that may be challenging on the onsight leads to more confidence inspiring gear above. It is very good and always near by. Microstoppers, small cams, nothing larger than a #0.75 Camalot. A two bolt anchor awaits with a length of chain up top.
