Comments: Why do Arch to P2 of Wrist when you can do both pitches of Wrist? Great climbing to be had on both pitches! You guys are all crazy for laybacking that 4" crack. When I see a sweet cozy crack, I jam it when on lead. Great feet in the crack, and jugs up above, as well as finger-sized gear. I climbed this this afternoon and was in the shade the whole way. P1 has a rappel sling tree anchor. No rap anchor on top P2. Had to walk off.
