Description 

An isolated cluster of crags south of the Snakeskin Buttress, but north of the Corral Crags. SE oriented and protected from the wind and stays in the sun longer than most areas making it nice on the colder days. Ben Folsom was the first to install a very nice and surprisingly long slab route up this excellent rock for the area.
Later routes were added by Jason Stevens and Tim Toula.

Getting There 

An obvious slab on the south end of the South Corridor in a recessed area up the hill.

Satisfaction Guaranteed 5.12c 7b+ 27 IX- 27 E6 6b  Utah : West Desert : ... : Scorpion Slab
Many amazing individual moves combine to bring satisfaction after working this puzzle out. Peter V expressed a bit of disappointment after solving the puzzle. Sometimes the process is more intriguing than the solution. Both Tim and Peter rave about the unique movement. Tim originally thought it to be as hard as 5.13c! More consensus will be a better judge. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah
