Description

Not quite as classic as Scar Girl, Little Scratch may give a little diversion if you find yourself in the area. A low angle, short, large-hands crack shatters this boulder in two. Its slightly right-leaning nature makes things somewhat interesting, although the boulder is just too short and not steep enough to gain too much acclaim. Still, it's always satisfying to sink in some bomber hand jams.

Start with hands in the crack, and one foot above the cave at the bottom of the boulder (you may want to check to make sure nothing is living in the cave). Once out of the biz, head straight up to the quartz rock set in the boulder for the direct finish.

This is a good add-on to any scrambling done in the area and a nice extra-point after Scar Girl.

Location

Find the Scar Girl Boulder, and head north to a corner. Scramble up the corner heading west, and you'll run into Little Scratch, which rests on above.
