Scorpion Corner

Average Rating = 4.00/5 Scorpion Corner

Scorpion Corner (22), an aesthetic line high on the Bluffs. I'd been eyeing this for a long time but was always intimidated. Fortunately it's got great gear and isn't as hard as it looks.

Stephen on Bebop Tango (5.11a)

Average Rating = 3.29/5 Stephen on Bebop Tango (5.11a)

Located in a shady corridor, this climb can be quite cold. All three of us were forced to rest at the same spot on account of numb fingers. A great steep sport climb, and a rarity for J-tree.

One of the best routes at Hindhede, and one of my first leads (and lead falls). Small holds up slab lead to a traverse and chains. Essential.

The Triple Cracks pitch on the Shield.

Average Rating = 3.00/5 The Triple Cracks pitch on the Shield.

The Triple Cracks was probably the crux for us. Right off the belay my partner Joe placed a beak, and then the smallest nut we had (a black HB offset). Fortunately things tamed up and those sawed off angles are pretty bomber.
