Pitch 2: Step up slab from belay and follow easy cracks to the summit slabs.

EDIT: Follow the EASY crack system that starts above small slab on the upper-left of belay, dihedral to the right is a .10a variation (Presidente).

Location 

Start at the base next to Oak trees right of a large right-facing dihedral. Scramble off back side to the Descent Gully.

Just lead this yesterday and was warned from a local that it isn't 5.5 and and that it had a couple 5.10 moves. The first pitch is exciting and it's at least a 5.8/9. The second pitch is 5.5. I threw a hex in the first crack and used a BD # 4 and forced a #5 in the hand crack after clipping the bolt on the traverse out of the chimney.

Protecting the traverse on the first pitch creates a lot of rope drag.. There's an old bolt hanger on the right face and an older piton on the left chimney wall. Other pro as well. Second pitch is great! And cruiser! Not sure where belay is? There are bolts for a different climb that can be used over top.
