Go up the giant plates climbing across the best rock and clipping three bolts to reach the ledge and a scoop. Work up into the scoop on small edges, side pulls and a pocket or two. Solve this short crux bit and you are home free.

In an effort to straighten out Root Beer Float I added a new sport anchor to avoid the leftward traverse at the end. We had been top roping Chocolate Malts crux scoop section for years using the RBF anchor, so I decided to add some bolts since there were obvious clipping stances and it all came together nicely. A good route and a late addition to the Soda Fountain Wall.

The climbing above the ledges (crux) is quality. Fun route.
