The Scoop
Sep 4, 2017 · Solo. This didn't seem possible at first in the summer heat but finally went after several tries. The start was a tricky stem. Went left through the roof on jugs.

Classic Crack
Sep 4, 2017 · TR. The hand crack portion was disgusting and difficult due to the wet calcifying animal urine trickling down the sides. Definitely not worth setting up a top rope for this garbage. Save yourself the smelly hands and go do the Scoop Arete then The Scoop.
