One of the best. Paraphrasing the Buttermilks gui...

This is a Black Mountain classic with perfect rock and a committing crux at the end – a scary deadpoint off greasy smears to the lip. Sweet!
It gets a lot of sun, so early morning or late afternoon are probably the best times to do it.


On the south side of the boulder.

This is one of several problems pictured and described in John Long's 1980 Black Mountain article, "Pumping Granite." His description from those pages: "The Scoop, a test in balance and opposition palming - footholds are minute and a brute's approach ensures failure."
1980 means no crash pads and no sticky rubber. Yikes!

Right on. With the recent guidebook's stated intent to not discuss the history of the place, it falls to random folks to pipe up where they can.
