Wade Forrest during the FA.


The Scythe is a beautiful line and a cool feature of the Main wall. The pitch follows a black streak system to a conspicuous right trending crescent crack feature.

Start off on slabby, juggy terrain to reach a high first bolt at 20'. Scamper past jugs and several "Peaks Crag" style mantel moves throughout the middle section.

The scythe feature is the hard bit, though some jamming skill, countless foot moves, and some perseverance here will get you through this enigmatic section. Then enjoy very cool, jug stemming to the top. Good stone throughout.

Bolts and fixed biner anchor.
