Saint Sixtus Scoop

Resting at one of the many bulges on the route.
This climb is just right of the arete by Natural Born Thriller, and around the corner of the Hot Zone. It follows 7 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor. The climbing begins by pulling over a small overhang (you can clip the first bolt by standing on the rock if you are tall enough) and continues up. Stem and smear up to just below the seventh bolt (crux), where you have to make a reachy move to a good hold. You can avoid this crux by going out left of the bolt for some easier climbing.
7 quickdraws, plus something for the anchor.
Kyle, just after the start.

St. Sixtus, one of the five Belgium monasteries that still brews on the premises, is renowned for producing one of the world's most potent brews.
