Unfinished Concerto provides the meat of the route in the first pitch - nice crack climbing to a very balancy mantel on to a ledge with bolts. From here, 2-3 pitches of easier climbing takes you to the Gemini Rappel Anchors. Double ropes are needed to rap to Sentry Box ledge and one single rope rappel (or down climb) gets you to the ground.
Located on a tree covered ledge to the left of Rat's Ass and Second Coming. Look for the great hand size crack on the first pitch.
Standard NC rack. Double ropes, long runners.

Look out for snakes at the base. I've come across copperheads a couple times and heard tell of rattlers too!

The bolts on pitch 1 should be moved 100'+ higher.
There is a splitter at the top of P1.
P2 is totally worthy.
Rap rings would service Fat Dog to Rat's Ass. Sentry Box?
All without adding a single bolt. But then again.... let's encourage toproping an obvious multipitch climb.

…or get rid of the bolts altogether, I hear "There is a splitter at the top of P1". What are those bolts even for?
