Scavenger climbs the green line over a bulge, then...

Description 

Scavenger is the second and more worthwhile pitch of the Snatch (5.7). Carefully avoid the guano on your way to the bombproof rest just below the crux bulge. Pull over the bulge to another good rest in a corner. Continue up the corner, but be cautious as the rock quality here is not as good. A huge bird's nest is visible from here, but seemed to be vacant when we passed by. Enter a chimney that is steeper than it first appears and enjoy the exposure near the top. A traverse out of the chimney and onto the arete adds to the climb. Enjoy the great views from the top of Aguaworld!

Location 

On the west end of Aguaworld, climb the unmistakable corner, then change direction and climb past a large bird's nest and into a bombay chimney. Walk off or make a two-rope rappel from a sling.

Protection 

Standard rack. No fixed gear. Good cam belay at the large block atop the Snatch (5.7) and another cam and nut belay at the top of the wall. About 20 feet above, there is a gray sling with a quicklink that provides a two-rope rappel (really cool because of the big roofs) instead of a walk off.
