Description

This is a fun 5.9 located towards the left end of Scorpio Crag, about a 1/4 mile northwest of the Lord of La Junta roof. The route is located about 100 yards northwest of the Class 3 access as described on the main page for Scorpio Crag. The beginning of the route is identifiable by two side-by-side hueco-type formations in white rock.

Climb white, steep, featured rock up and right, and then move back left as the rock turns into more solid sandstone. Fire up the face on positive holds via small cracks and horizontals to the top.

Location

It is at the far left end of the Scorpio Crag, about 20 yards left of the 4th Class step and 100 yards right of the Class 3 step.

Protection

TR. You can access the top of the route via a 4th class step just to the left and around the corner from the base of the climb. Bring several hand-sized cams and webbing for making an anchor.
