Looking up through belly crawl.

Description 

Scorpio Crack is a good crack climb for the area. It is worth the drive to be in a beautiful valley. The climb goes from fingers to big hands. There are nice double anchors at the top.

Location 

This route is on the south side of Scorpio Dome. You can skirt in from the west side to do this pitch or climb The Sting to make it a 2 pitch climb.

Protection 

From a yellow Alien all the way up to a new #4 Camalot and 2-3 #2 Camalots for the mid-section.

Phenomenal crack climbing! Great training route. With the convenient anchors up top you could run laps all day (tape highly suggested).

Great crack. Wish there were a few more pitches of it.
