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.  Scoping out the 5.9 finish. We turned the triangle roof right (top right of photo) after short thin fingers dihedral. Spicy! Trend right above that on nice easy liebacking to another challenging roof. A great next pitch addition to the Hiatus P3 black groove 5.8R. Lumpy delivers time and time again.  Upper ice tier of Chaos Creek crag with a well formed 8m pillar far right - Speed Skating, WI5 - 12/26/2013.
