My vote for the BEST 5.12a in Skaha, Scarab is a classic old-school John Fantini route with a little bit of everything; a slab crux down low, a crazy body-position crux up high, an enduro finish, and healthy bolt spacing. Find it on the Isis Wall deep in the Doctors Corridor. As Fantini would say, this is a ‘proper 12a,’ and a challenging onsight. Bring a 70 meter rope because this beast climbs a full 35 meters .. incredible!
