Rockfax Description
One of the better routes at Scout Scar with good rock and sustained climbing. The initial moves to pass the first bolt and gain a poor rest at the break are desperate. Another technical sequence up and left gains the lower-off.
Direct Finish, 7a - Go straight up then left to the lower-off. © Rockfax

Clean in one push. First half clipped.

Going steady on lead as I arrived at the traverse then found myself quickly back down to the 1st bolt after lobbing mid-clip.. Gutted. Next time hopefully.

Really happy to get this although enjoyed working it, will miss it! Some wetness in crucial sidepull made it easier(!) as I reached higher and found a crimp which was easier than the sidepull move. Also getting right foot high sooner helped. Found a way to clip 3rd bolt but quite on/off so decided not to clip until I got to the jug. Really good plan, went fine.

Can now do the move to the crimp most of the time but haven't found a reliable way to clip. Then the crux crossover move to the white jug is 50:50 at best. Making progress though!

Can do top half from the big jug upwards. Worked on lower half a lot. Have found way from right hand on good crimp, cross through with left for sidepull then right to big jug. Can also get from ground to underclings, but keep barndooring off getting from there to crimp.

I think it was this route. Notes just show a 6c+ with no known name at the time.
