Description Suggest change

The crux is definitely the first pitch - very sustained laybacking with delicate smearing. The higher you climb, the thinner it gets. Not super technical but sustained and pumpy.

The second pitch starts with thin laybacking, but after pulling around an a little roof/corner feature, you'll zig-zag up an easy (5.5 or so) off-width crack before finishing on another sweet ledge (and the first pitch of Mercy Me).

Protection Suggest change

Gear (and rock) are impeccable.
Pitch One: One fixed piece about 20 feet up the first pitch. Bolted belays; bring two ropes for the rap.

Medium rack, a few small TCU's, and at least two 3.5 to 4 inch pieces for the wide stuff up top.
