To the right of "Scandalous Summer", climb past 6 bolts to a big ledge.

There is a nice little 20-25 foot runout on 5.8 climbing between the 5th and 6th bolts. Also, you could deck from pretty high up, on albeit pretty easy terrain, between the 2nd and 3rd bolts. SuperTopo calls this route "R" and I would agree.

You need gear for the belay at the top. I used a .5, .75 and #1 Camalot. Scramble over and rap from the tree on top of Scandalous Summer.

I think the friction climbing on this one gives it more variety and character than most of the other generic knob-pulling climbs on this wall.

Yes, it is a bit serious, and the first bolt especially could have been better positioned, but don't let that stop you from getting on this climb if you're solid at the grade. While people are stacked up over on "Cheezburgers and Beer," you'll most likely have this beauty to yourself.
