a .75 and .5 camalot for the bottom, and very small stuff for the crux. A .2 and .3 and a few even smaller. Depends how brave you are.

Description:

As you arrive at Scorched earth, the trail hits the wall right in front of a pillar that has two routes on it. This route is the obvious aesthetic finger crack on the right. Easy ledges for the first 20 feet. Good fingers lead to tips with some really small face holds. After the blank face it eases up but there aren't many places for gear. Perhaps easier to just run it out to the chains if you are comfortable.

3 out of 5 stars Great finger crack

Protects well throughout w/ red and yellow C3's. There is an unsettling band of crystals inside the crack that kept breaking as I was yanking on my pieces, so make sure your gear is set well. WAY soft for the grade.

5 out of 5 stars Big runout

Small feet at the crux and then a huge runout to the chains on fairly easy moves. A great route over all! Surprisingly solid limestone.
