Comments: Obscure variation:

After pitch 3 eases, instead of going for Rebuffat's Arete, run up and belay at the first BIG tree smack dab in the middle of the gully. Traverse from the tree directly left onto the left wall of the gully, and follow a crack system upward, navigating past a bush in the crack then over a ledge or two and some blocky terrain on up over the top. Maybe 5.9.

Not as classic as the arete but worthwhile to me.

Comments: Nice change of pace for the grade at Potrero, juggy steep crux unlike most of the less than vertical balancy face climbing most of the 5.10a's offer.

Comments: Fun, worth doing. Take your skinny rope, it's a long pitch if linked. Something like 19 bolts.

Comments: Did it today... agreed, this route's hardware could use an update, especially the wonky anchors. But, very fun route with lots of thoughtful sequences interspersed between quite good stances. Clipping the last bolt was the crux for me. I'd sure like a a lighter weight rope for these long pitches on the Scrutinizer!
