Climbed this again - I still have NOT gotten the 2nd pitch correct!
There are 3 bolts on pitch #2. First bolt is above belay, and can be climbed to directly. From here trend up and slightly left. The 2nd bolt is ABOVE an overlap/ledge about 50-60 feet from the 1st bolt. The large left trending ledge (described in P2 variation above) starts here and goes left. I never saw this bolt the first time we climbed the route. From the 2nd bolt climb straight up and then step right to 3rd bolt and then back left to large belay with 2 bolt belay (or climb much easier left ledge P2 variation].
How not to do P2!!! From first bolt climb straight up and over small 1 foot black roofs (looked interesting) There is some delicate face climbing here, but after about 50 feet you will find yourself above very small gear, with diminishing gear ahead. I traversed hard left for 30-40 feet to escape this mess only to stumble into bolt #2.
The granite on P3 near bottom was a little grainy - needs more climbers to clean it up.

|I wanted to let people know that this climb is to the right of the spire not the left. It is to the left of Western Wynde. The seam is is easy to locate once you look up and see the first pitch anchors. It starts on a small bulge against the rock.|

|Great climb. To find the start, look for a bolt 15' up; it's on the big wall to the right of the Bush Shark Spire tower (not on the tower itself, and before you turn the corner into the side canyon with Westeron Wynde).|
