The Optimist (7b/+/26), The Scoop, Montagu

We stay at the Scoop and look at a route further to the right, The Optimist.  This route can be done in a very technical or powerful dynamic way.  Charles opted for a combo.

Somehow I really liked the Top Gun song, Danger Zone, for this one.

    Such a cruzy route this one, anyone can do this route really (many have onsighted it and most get it on their first redpoint attempt).
    Aptly named route too 🙂

    There is a good left knee bar to clip 2nd bolt as well

    @justin – “most get it on their first redpoint attempt” I think not ! It does not have that name for nothing :))
