Description:

One of the more popular climbs at Mount Scott - should be rated R because there is a 20 foot runout in the middle of the climb. Very nice hand crack that ends about 35 feet up. Gear up good near the top of the crack and then make face moves up and right along the arete for about fifteen feet until you can mantle back left onto a small ledge and the crack starts again.

still a great route. Once you get securely on the face though it gets really easy. Good to get out there and play around again though.
