1) Never park or camp overnight at the access points.
2) Always park off the pavement, taking great care to avoid blocking the gates.
3) Clean up after your dogs. (Local climbers are finding abandoned doggie poop bags.)
4) Pack out all trash and TP, including picking up after others.
5) Use the outhouses if at all possible.
This is the left most climb at Narrows West, about 50-100' downstream of Megalomaniac. Getting to the start involves wading through the stream and establishing a belay on some ledges.
P1: Is a bushy, chossy 5.8 crack protected w/ gear that is about 60' long. If I recall correctly it ended at rap anchors.
P2: 80' long, 5 bolts. The bottom half is quite sparsely bolted, very fun face climbing which takes supplemental finger size and smaller gear. The upper half of the pitch has more reasonable bolting but the climbing is desperate for the grade slabbing which ends at old school anchors featuring crusty slings, probably from the first ascent, one of which broke on us as we were setting up the rap.
Two single rope raps back to the starting ledges. Extra points for keeping your rope dry.
