Nuts and/or cams up to 2 inches, 2 quickdraws, slong a big boulder at the top with your rope.
FA: Terry Andrews, Duane Raleigh, Rick Thomas 1982. The most popular climb on Mount Scott. A classic. Put up using ground-up style on a very cold day by hand drilling awful 1/2 inch self-drilling bolts that were made for concrete and not granite! The old bolts have been replaced but you can still see them. I think it took me about 2 hours to drill each one.
Climb a nice hand sized crack until it peters out. Then face climb up and left to get two bolts. Pause for reflection on what it felt like to stand and hammer there for two hours in below freeezing weather and then face climb straight up to the top!! Very exciting climb!
