Approach


Drive up the Mt. Scott road to the summit parking lot. Park in the parking lot on the north side. Walk back down the mountain road for about 75 yards (count 25 guardrail posts from the top). The trail(?) scrambles down a ramp to the right (east) for 30 ft, then switches to the left and scrambles down another 50 ft to the bottom of the wall. Continuing left (west) another 50 ft and scramble through a notch between huge boulders. After the notch, the route is on the immediate left

Route Description


Although the topo on the link below rates it at 5.6, the guidebook rates it at 5.7. The general consensus is that it is 5.7.

Follow the crack up for 30 ft until it ends. The crack nicely takes medium cams/large nuts low, then smaller cam/nuts higher up. When the crack ends, traverse right with a long stretch. Pro is scarce after this. Continue up 20 ft. onto a ledge. Finish after 10 more feet with stemming moves to a larger belay ledge. Use a large boulder to the climbers right for belay anchor.

Scroll down this link for a topo of "Foolish".

Essential Gear


One 60 meter rope. Small to medium cams, stoppers. 20 ft runners for belay at the top. Helmet.
