Description 

a good long warmup route with nice movements on easy holds..


Location 

the small little area right before don q.


Protection 

lots of draws, probably 14 to 16. also make sure you have a 70 with a knot in the end and can down climb the first bolt or just take two ropes. another option would be to rappel to the anchors of flying scorpion.

A tricky 10a. Note: a 70 meter rope will NOT get you back to the ground!

a surprisingly good climb - sustained, thoughtful 10a moves to the top. it's totally worth the two raps it takes to get down.

I love this climb. All 140 feet! you need two ropes to get down or lower to the the anchors on Flying Scorpian. A lot of great moves on this climb. Edges, crimps, jugs...it's all there!
