What the Scootch Boulder lacks in height, it makes up for in length. There are several short problems and eliminates on its slightly taller (up hill) Southwest side. This long, short boulder is often overlooked and passed by for the more aesthetically appealing Mad Cow Bolder. But don't be fooled, there are some gems to be found on this little under dog.

Getting There 

Walk in through the gate past Scotts Rock and follow the main trail uphill. As you approach between the first set of boulders, look for a narrow trail leading across the drainage and up hill to a short but long boulder on your left. This is the Scootch Boulder.

A specific eliminate problem, sit start on a right broken triangle pinch and really bad left hand sloper side pull. Make a desperate move to a decent crimp high up (right), and move left to a triangle pinch (just up to the left of the crimp). Move right hand to the obvious sloper (incredibly chalked up) and set yourself up for the final left throw over the lip.
