Paul Heyliger on FA of 2nd pitch (5.12a).
The first pitch is about 11a and the second about 12a with two very hard moves right off the belay.
The first pitch has multiple 10d/11a cruxes.
This is 30 feet right of Big House
on John's Tower. A 60 meter rope needed for rappel from the second belay.
One or two cams about 1/2 inch would be useful in a horizontal seam. The rest is sport. There are chain anchors on both belay stations.

A nice slab route, just enough bolts, with fun movements. Stay close to the bolt line to keep it at 10c or so (first pitch). Staying right of the last bolt (before the first anchor) will up it to Jim Brink's suggested 11a. Didn't really see anything that would justify a PG rating unless perhaps you neglect to bring a piece as Jim recommends. All just my opinion, of course.
