BETA PHOTO: The start of Scarface. A2 right facing corner to ...
Scarface is a really fun route. It has some moderate nailing, but mostly clean cam cracks. The pitches in the white scar are very memorable, bullet hard and splitter. The finishing piches are wandering and lower angle, using all natural belays for the last 4 pitches.
This route is substantially more involved than the Prow or skull queen on the Column, due to having a nailing rack. Most teams should plan on 2 bivies.
This line travels through the huge white scar. It starts at a huge right facing corner system, climbing a smaller right facing corner to the left to a roof with a 2 bolt belay. The next few pitches follow cracks on the arete before traversing to the largest belay tree under the white scar.
Standard Nailing Rack.
