This really is a super fun lead, very different from the typical RRG sport route. Good footwork is pretty crucial, but it's all there if you keep your eyes open.

The finish may feel desperate, especially if you try to clip while hanging from the very loose and dirty top ledge. I found a fist jam to clip the anchors.

Warmed up on this route. It gave me the hebbie jebbies. Maybe thats why the call it scabies. FYI anchors are good now.
