[Hide Comment] The bolted anchors for the second pitch stop short of the true summit. To reach the summit, clip a bolt on the right of the anchors and continue up a crack clipping rusty iron pins (for psychological protection) till you reach the top. There is a set of anchors at the top as well. Apr 25, 2010
[Hide Comment] All the hangers are missing at the top of the 2nd pitch! I saw 5 bolts with nuts with no hangers. Wtf!
Thus wasn't willing to use the three rusty piton rings to the summit (or to lower off), plus may not have made it back to the top of the first pitch with enough rope, hard to say, was only using a 60. So there was a quicklink on the last bolt of Crack Test Dummies I was able to lower off back to first anchor. Apr 21, 2017

[Hide Comment] The top was a little sketch. We ended up traversing to the other side and rappelled down from the "off the notch" anchors. Jan 2, 2019
