Tim coming up the thin 2nd pitch

Description 

Do first pitch of Transmission (3 bolts and gear, 10d); go left from anchors to a crack for 10' and continue up and left thru overhung face (8 bolts and gear at start only, crux pitch, 11c); up steep face to exposed lieback arete finish; this can be bypassed by going on the arete for an easier finish (8 bolts, 10c). Rap route w/single 60m rope.


Location 

north facing on central buttress

Found the cruxes on the 2nd pitch to be significantly harder than the other 11+ climbs at Iso. Extremely sustained and delicate-powerful climbing with moves that needed a lot of thought. Had to step "Off route" a couple times to rest and eye the steep ground ahead that appeared devoid of holds (thankfully, this route doesn't see much traffic and so isn't plastered with chalk like Submission). Needs fluidity and speed to get through without total burnout!

The second pitch of this route is amazing, sustained with thin positive holds, 2 very fun challenging cruxes. Not to be missed.
