Description 

P1 110' Climb the right chimney. There are two blocks in the climb that you have to get outside the chimney to work around, there are a lot of holds but most are loose. After that continue up into a run out bigger than squeeze chimney/offwidth and then top out on a ledge. We rapped off of a slung boulder here (horrible pull) 5.9 PG-13+.
P2 80'? looks like you could continue up this with some easy face climbing/low angle crack to a tree, it looked pretty run out.

2 60m ropes for the rappel off P1

Location 

~1.2 miles from pavement down capitol gorge. Climb is on the right at the start of a 180' left turn. There is lots of room to pull off the road in the turn.

Protection 

Medium cams, single rack #.5-#4 camalots. A medium hex would be useful instead of the #4.
