Description 

This two pitch climb can be done in 1 easily, or stop at P1's chain anchors and rap off. The links are getting thin, so not a good spot to lower from. If you do the whole thing you can walk off.

P1:Start in the shallow dihedral and follow the bolts onto the slab. The crux is a mantle which can feel committing on lead. There are no moves, however, which feel like hard 5.9.
P2: Plug gear in the vertical cracks straight up to the top. A grade easier, but gritty.


Location 

Right next to the railroad tracks, 50 ft. east of Rysinzube. It's the bolt line to the right that follows a groove.


Protection 

P1 (40ft.): bolts to chain anchor.
P2: (60 (ft.): standard rack to 2". a lean rack will do. It's short.

The anchors on P1 have just been replaces with stainless rap rings. 2/10/11
