DescriptionThis variation to P2 of Reaper is continuous, strenuous, tricky and exposed; though the guide book gives it the same rating as Reaper, it gave me a lot more trouble. From the belay at the end of Reaper P1, traverse right to a bolt which protects a hard move over a bulge. Once over the bulge, traverse R, slightly harrowing, and gain a thin crack, which is ascended for about 4M to a marginal stance below a roof. Plug what you can in the roof, traverse left for a move or two and hope you have enough juice left to pull the roof at solid 5.11. The climbing eases above here and merges w/ Wild Oats.
ProtectionI remember placing a small RP, some small rocks, a Red Alien, a Gold Camalot. A 1.5 Friend size piece goes in well at the crux roof but placing it adds considerably to the pump. Supplement the pieces mentioned here judiciously as I'm sure I placed considerably more than that. The pitch has two significant traverses so sling accordingly.
