Description

We did this climb in one pitch and recommend doing it that way. We were able to get down in two raps w/ a single 60m rope; be careful as both raps are stretchers.

Starts with a crack, then a 10b roof, then some enjoyable easy slabbing. If doing it in one pitch, be mindful of rope drag.

Location

On the left side of HTT, atop a 30' high pillar. Scramble up the pillar (easy 5th) to a belay anchor that is shared with Brothers in Arms. BIA goes left, Scorpion right.

Protection

P1: 7 bolts P2: 9 bolts.

While it's fun to combine both pitches together, it doesn't leave you with enough rope to lower to the mid-point anchor so you're forced to belay at the top at a terrible slab stance. I think it's better to stop halfway where there's a nice ledge, climb the top as a second pitch, lower back, then a single 35m rap gets you back down. Feb 28, 2018
