BETA PHOTO: The Scorpion arete.

Description 

Mega! Climbs the arete at the lowest point of the Dominator Wall. Bouldery crux comes at about 1/3 height. Then climb to a ledge shared with "Dead Souls". After that it's go-time with a pumpy overhanging knife-edge arete and another crux move at the second to last bolt. Again... MEGA!

Location 

At the lowest point of the Dominator wall. Starts right off the approach trail. Right of "Dead Souls".

Protection 

Many bolts (14?) and rap hangers. You'll use about every inch of your 60m rope to lower off so tie a knot in the end!
