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.
