Double Exposure.

Description 

This stellar alpine route climbs thin cracks past two bolts on the first pitch (5.9) and offers two distinct finishes for the second pitch. Easy does it passing the giant, wobbly flake after you launch up the second pitch.
(Take heart, despite our best efforts, the flake only wobbled but wouldn't come off.)

The second pitch passes two bolts and the wobbler to reach the intersection of two possible finishes:

•Head right and a perfect crack angles out right up a ramp providing an easy finish keeping the overall grade around 5.9.

•For a bit more of a challenge, after conquering the wobbler follow bolts up, out left, then up the face to anchors, 5.10.

Both alternatives are incredibly exposed and scenic with great rock. Climb the route twice, and hit both finishes for bonus points!

Location
