Description

NUMBER 2 on the Topo. Start up an ill-protected, knobby face underlying a rounded lip and waterstreak. Place an optional #1 Camalot prior to mounting the slightly overhanging lip on dicey crystals (you can clip the first hanger if you have a big ape index). Continue up and right past the four bolts on successively smaller/thinner edges that seem to vanish! The crux is to the left after the 4th bolt. Stretch it, man. Place a cam or two above the crux if you're still shaking.

NOTE: Alternate 2nd Pitch, No. 5 on the topo, 3 bolts, 5.9+ and a little run out. Follow the bolt line. Don't get suckered left or right. Exciting! 2 bolt anchor just right of top. 2 rope rap to the ground.

Protection

This is a mixed climb, so take at least 8 QD's, and at least 2 #0.75 and 2 #1 Camalots. There's a 2 bolt and chain anchor at the top. A 60 M rope will get you all the way back to the ground.

Replaced all the bolts on both the first and second pitches today. Also added an additional anchor bolt at the top of the second pitch but didn't have a quicklink and chain, so that is needed if someone is going up there.
