High Tension Area, arete just right of Brothers In Arms. Belay at start anchor for Brothers but head straight up the short fist crack to the arete. Pitch 1: 5.10b, 100'; pitch 2: 5.9, 100'. Lower leader off 2nd pitch to the 1st pitch anchor (rope-stretcher with 60m rope), then rap to the pitch 1 anchor on Sparky Does Power Tower. A 70m rope just makes it from the pitch 1 anchor on Scorpion to the deck. You can TR Brothers in Arms and/or most of Sparky Does Power Tower, if you are careful.

4 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

Great climb. First pitch was fun, but the second was stellar with uncharacteristic Owens climbing.
