Many route possibilities exist between Ha Ling Peak and Mount Lawrence Grassi but all require high-consequence scrambling. Our route was certainly not the most direct (we ascended the front of Ha Ling and descended the back of Miner's Peak) and therefore may easily be broken, but nevertheless here it is:
On Sept 10, 2015 Joanna Ford and Jamie Junker completed the Ha Ling Peak to Mount Lawrence Grassi traverse in 4 hours and 44 minutes car to car, unsupported and by 'fair means'. Click here for GPS data.
I took a little more direct route up regular the ha ling route and down via regular grassi route (although I hadn't done it before and think i took a little detour). Still tons of room for improvement although i don't think it will be by me . Although I just noticed I didn't hit miners peak.

Well done Shane, sub 4 hours for this route already achieved. The true summit of Miner's is mislabeled, you passed within spitting distance of the true summit and since it would add maybe a few mins and take zero technical skills your new time is the one to beat imo! This route is pretty tricky, can't see being able to ever take the same way twice, nice work.
