BETA PHOTO: Blood Brothers and Cornered.


This is a good introduction to slab climbing.

Blood Brothers is a rising traverse of the slab on the right side of Scout Rock. Start at the left side of the slab, about 40' left of Cornered.

Step up and clip the first bolt. Continue traversing right along the top edge of the slab to the anchor at a stance just left of Cornered. The hardest move is at the end. Lower from hooks. Have your second follow the pitch and clean the draws.


This is at the left edge of the slab on the right side of Scout Rock, about 40' left of Cornered.


5 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor with lowering hooks.

Odd line - still crumbly. Lots of good footholds crumbled while we climbed. Should be interesting to see how this cleans up.

Good climb. This is a great climb for someone to get comfortable leading traverses. Footholds are coming off though there are stille plenty to compliment the finger holds.

I've done this recently, the route is pretty clean now. Very good intro to slab style climbing, especially for a leader. Two stars - it's fun but short.

Is a very weird route and is very hard on the ankles.
