Description

This line looks easy, but it isn't. There are 6 bolts (old ones) that go directly up the slab directly under Scorpio Crack. Follow the bolt line right up to the big flakes, then belay at the big ledge of Scorpio Crack. Be mindful of loose rock, especially on the ledge. The crux is on the upper section around the 5th bolt.

Location

Follow the gully to Scorpio Crack, but then keep going. Don't be to quick to head straight down, but work through the boulders to the base of the climb. Look for Lazy Crack on the gentle slab. To the right about 15 feet up, you can see the first bolt. Be ready for some slab friction climbing!

Protection

Bring 6 quickdraws and a few cams or nuts for the flakes. Also bring a long cord to help extend the anchor.
