|Table Scraps Pinnacle
Start up a distinct hanging rib for 2 bolts. At the top of the rib is a ledge where you transfer onto a short steeper headwall while staying on the left side of the arete. Once over the short section, large jugs and cruiser moves lead to the shared anchor with Cayucos.
This is the route that is the farthest to the left on the crag and is slightly left of Cayucos around the corner.

The crumbly moss covered rock is the only thing to add interest to this otherwise easy and boring outing. If you are looking for a route to skip on the pinnacle this is it.

Hehe I was wondering who would be the 1st to comment. As a note of interest, I spent zero time cleaning Hobo for the very reason other than wanting to see how the rock would climb without any cleaning at all. As your comment indicates, I think the results speak for themselves. Cleaning is needed at Scraps whether you "like it" or not. I'll clean it up next time out and that should help with the quality. The climbing itself is fun, but is too hard to see underneath the munge in its current state :)

It didn't seem any more licheny or crumbly than any other Table Scraps climb. However, a foothold broke off when I led it. And I didn't see the last bolt until I was well above and right of it.

Climbed this again for the 1st time in a long time. The rock is actually cleaning up pretty fast, even faster than I would've guessed. It must be seeing some traffic to have seen this big of improvement so quickly! I think the climbing on the route is actually quite varied and interesting.
