Scalpel and Blades of Glory the twin crack climbs ...


Listed as 5.8R in the guidebook, it actually has 4 bolts and though not as well protected as Blades of Glory, isn't very runout. The crux comes around the second bolt.
A second pitch is registered as a project and will probably never be completed. You can, however, climb the first four bolts of it and lower off if you want.


Left and uphill from Blades of Glory. Climb the left crack to bolted face.


4 bolts and pro to 1.5".
