|Wall of the Flying Scorpions
A knee bar makes the first clip easy and protects the first hard section. The rest of the climb is pretty moderate and leads to a fun right arching layback section through the final bulge.
Start at the right edge of a small roof band that is about 8 feet off the ground

*Rock Fall Warning! Belay with Helmet!* Climbing is fun but rock quality kills a lot of the fun. I exploded a key hold above the final bolt before the anchors. This finish is now a bit more challenging. Also kicked a hold off between the fourth and fifth bolt that will make clipping the bolt considerably harder for People under 5'5". I cleaned off everything that I could after breaking these two holds. Sorry, my fat ass was destroying all the rock today.

Climbing after Eric, I would say this climb is still easily a 9+. His exploding hold didn't change the climb particularly. Fun route I thought, especially at the beginning, but definitely lots of loose rock! A safer climb though after his cleaning.
