Will Strickland on Change of Scene - 10a
Start up using smooth softball sized huecos moving up and right. 3rd bolt section is a bit greasy. Midway you cross over a small roof which is bolt protected and continue to summit.

Nice longer route.... going straight up and through the extra greasy Huecos at the start makes this route much harder than if you use the clean arete holds out right. Off route? Maybe, but gee, it is only about 28" right of the real route. 5.8 this way.

The route is solid 5.8 climbing with the stiff 10a/b move right at the third bolt. Very fun climb.

Recently did this climb. Some of the holds were loose and hollow. Some huecos were still greasy too.

This route is good fun. Make sure you take at least 10 draws. I was one short at the top and had to skip a bolt near the top (when in doubt run it out). Excellent 10a lead for the area!
