The Vampire, Tahquitz  
This happy climber is looking at about a thousand feet of exposure with their hands wrapped over the killer jug one finds after completing the 5.11a five-move crimp-fest to a sloping-stem to a funky-low-reach directly off the bolts a the first belay. Above is the Balogna Slicer, which is one of the finest 5.9 pitches ANYWHERE, and eats pro from 1/2 to 1 1/2 inch off solid feet. The down-mantle to get to the bolts on top of this pitch is easy, but the sideways trend of this pitch makes returning to the belay seen here quite difficult, if one fails on the 5.11a crux on the third pitch...just sayin'...It is a massive pendulum from the top of pitch #2 to return to the top of pitch #1...
