Climb the first two pitches of Scar Tissue and traverse to a two-bolt belay beneath a black streak.
Pitch 1: Climb ice blobs to reach bolted face climbing that continues up through roofs to a two-bolt hanging belay. (M8, 35 m)
Pitch 2: Step left and maneuver past a few bolts to gain the ice. Climb it to the top and belay off ice. (M6+ WI5+, 35 m)
Gear: Standard ice rack (incl. 1-2 stubbies). 18 draws (incl. some alpine draws). Two ropes.
Descent: With two 70 m ropes, rappel off v-thread from the top back to the bolted station at the start of pitch 1. Rappel from anchor straight to ground. With 60 m ropes do not skip stations and from the start of Naga rappel the first two pitches of Scar Tissue.
