A nice steep route - 10/17/2015. <br /> <br />Photo: P. Manley.  If there is such a thing as great WI2, the second pitch (with 70s) is it!  Recommended variation on P2 (as described here) is to layback the first stuff as usual but then head up and slightly right to the bottom of this splitter crack. 5.9 on the Rossiter topo, but it goes easy for Lumpy 9. As it fades, traverse straight left (5.8 face) to the bolts.  Peter out over the big roof on P3 - Aug. 16, 2014.  Deb coming up the nice handcrack on P2, approaching some easy off-width.
