DescriptionScrappy's Child is a fun mixed route on the far right of the Heel-Toe Wall. When it is in shape, it offers fun thinly iced corners up good rock. Most people will climb it in two pitches as with all the ledges it would have a lot of rope drag.
Pitch 1 - The start in the beta picture of Eastern Sierra Ice, shows Scrappy's Child starts right of the Heel-Toe starting flow up rock and climbing over the boulder between the Heel-Toe start and the ledge where the rescue litter is. A better start is to climb the Heel-Toe starting flow and then stem up an icy chimney behind the boulder. From the top of the chimney, a short step right leads to a steep icy crack system and a large snow-covered ledge.
Pitch 2 - A narrow ice runnel leads to a steep rock step with a small tree. A steep corner with multiple cracks ends with a loose rock covered ledge. From the ledge, one more steep corner climbing a detached pillar to the top-out.
