A)Scorpian Slab 5.9- B) Dancing in the Dark.5.6


P1) Up the gray slab to double anchors. 190' 5.3
P2) Continue up the gray slab then left onto the chocolate slab to double anchors. 190' 5.3
P3) Up to the left of the chocolate slab is a scooped depression with a light gray streak. Up into this then continue to the ridge and double anchors 190' 5.9- R

Register in a cairn on a ledge below the anchors.

Descent: Rap the route.


This climb has a sting in its tail. Walk through Spotted wolf Canyon and in 5 minutes on the left side past the North Ridge one will come to a very large amphitheater with a ridge on its right and a cave at its top. This climb is on the right side on a slab with a prominent S-shaped chocolate slab. The climb starts up the gray slab just to the right of the chocolate rock. Scramble up low angle slabs for several hundred feet to the start.


Friends #1 #2 #3. Two 60m ropes. Slings.
