Easier if you're tall; a big hold in the middle of the face allows a long reach to be made to a decent dish over the top, stand up and understand why it's called Scorpion - there's a sting in the tail trying to get over the lip.
Big hold has now gone which has increased the grade from V1 - small crimps now.
Canyon Boulders Map, down and right (clockwise) from number 6. In other words from Spooky go left and around the corner, it's the route on the left of the face.
Stefan at the sting-in-the-tail.

Okay - so who tore the big crucial flake off? Looks like the route needs to be cleaned and re-climbed, at a harder grade no doubt.

Okay. I actually think it's a better problem now. Needs to be cleaned. But the new beta is pretty wicked. Used a crimp out high right. V3 I think...
