Scimitar  Sucess!

With Steph. I led all the pitches. Combining the last two worked for me, but I did not place much gear, otherwise there would be rope drag. She simul climbed 20' on 5th class slab to make that happen. You have two choices on the crux of the route on pitch three. First time you do the route, I recommend the "wild" option on the topo. That was pretty cool. 2nd time I will go straight up the corner into a #4 roof which looks tough for the grade in its own right. We combined with Fantasia which makes sense. A 10 multi-pitch 5 day excursion, this was our last day, made it a short one as we were both going to hit the road and I suppose our two least favorite routes. Most of the others were 5.10 wide or fingers though to be fair...and around a lot less folks.
