Description:

FA: Terry Andrews, Duane Raleigh, Rick Thomas 1982. The most popular climb on Mount Scott. A classic. Put up using ground-up style on a very cold day by hand drilling awful 1/2 inch self-drilling bolts that were made for concrete and not granite! The old bolts have been replaced but you can still see them. I think it took me about 2 hours to drill each one. Climb a nice hand sized crack until it peters out. Then face climb up and left to get two bolts. Pause for reflection on what it felt like to stand and hammer there for two hours in below freeezing weather and then face climb straight up to the top!! Very exciting climb!

Another TR ascent. Not so sure I would do that top section on lead or not. I should just man-up and go for it though. Still would be more apt to call it a 10 also

5 out of 5 stars forearm

I agree, this route should be rated at least 10a... The face is a little tricky!
