So this Febuary the two Bens hiked up to 'The Itch' with the plan of bolting a route called 'The Scratch'.
Due to sugar snow and having to break trail, the hike took 3hrs 45min.

After finally reaching the climb we got to work cleaning and bolting the best looking line. By the time we were done it was to late to give the climb a go so we headed back to the car arriving after dark.
I just found out that Matt and Dan hiked up to the climb yesterday to try and steal the FFA but were shut down. However they report that it still needs some cleaning but will go likely go at M8-9.
