    P2: Climb to the loose ledge, aiming for the hanging dihedral system left of Northumberland Crack’s crux pitch. Climb through bulge and the steep dihedral (5.10b/c R), then climb a slab angling slightly left near top on prominent 5.7 R jugs to a ledge, 110 feet.

    P3: Climb obvious thin crack right of the Hot Spur’s final pitch (5.10c, 35 feet).


    Standard Eldo rack.

    If this is the dihedral around the corner of p.1 of Hot Spur, I climbed the first pitch in early 2010 (March?) and called it Machete 5.9. The first bit was really bushy. We continued up a big flake to the pine tree. I'll look for exact date. Fun first pitch though!
