Max heading up the runnel. This shot gives a good...


Head up the center of the wall on a juggy crack that overhangs for the 1st 10 feet. Once past the lip, trend up and left along the defined slab left of the crack. Aim for the obvious huge runnel. Bridge back and forth keeping the bolts on your left. This thing is juggy the whole way and stays moderate despite a decent increase in angle near the top.


Center of the wall. Obvious huge runnel.


9 bolts + anchors

Probably the best route at Scraps.

Lots of fun! Probably easier than 5.8, though, due to the wild abundance of holds.

Now that I've led this and Cayucos several times, I think they're equally difficult and 5.7.

Unfortunately the first bolt was missing this afternoon. I didn't examine it carefully to be certain what happened to it. I clipped the first bolt of Appertif, which wasn't very reassuring.

That really sucks and is head shaking. I'll bring the drill and a replacement and epoxy for the rest of the bolts next time out there :(

The first bolt was placed where it was for two reasons:

#1- The rock in the first few moves is very chossy, a fall there is highly possible due to the rock and the landing is not good.

#2- The start is the crux and not everyone brings a stick clip with them.

Why can't people just leave others work alone? I pray I run into the tard who thinks pulling this crap is a good idea.

I'm hoping to head out this weekend. Any idea if that first bolt was replaced or not? I'm a relatively new sport leader, so I don't want to push my luck.

Hey Jack: I haven't been out there since I heard about the hanger theft, so I doubt it's replaced. However, if you have a stick clip you will be able to reach the 2nd bolt (now 1st) easy enough. If not, I think you would be fine with your belayer spotting you bouldering style. At worst, you can always walk up the backside and scootch along the ridge to get to the anchors. It's a little sketchy but I have done it several times and it isn't that bad. Just bring a daisy chain to clip into Aperitifs anchors as you move over to Table Scraps anchors.

The first bolt is still missing; however a Blue 3.0 Camalot works well in the crack nearby. This climb is awesome. I loved the stemming up the large runnel.

Number 3 Camalot worked great in the crack next to the chopped bolt, thanks Mark. Fun stemming! One of the bolts near the bottom was loose (2nd or 3rd I think).

Fun. Easy. You get to go to the tippy top!!

the rock on this formation is unsafe. It is a bubbled volcanic friable veneer approx 2" in thickness over a soft sandy conglomerate. Attractive for its copious "holds, good hardware and proximity, it is not a good area to lead or for belayers. Lots of injuries here both minor and major due to holds breaking. FYI
