[Hide Comment] First pitch moves from ledge 30' up to the left, past old 2-bolt anchor; up what looks like a ridge when viewed from the base. Pretty well protected.
Second pitch - very hard to see the first bolt (I went left & found a very old 2-bolt anchor before finding the first bolt 25' up from the anchors). The second pitch has more distance between bolts; not quite dangerous, but feels more "sporty" than the first pitch.
Rappel from top of second pitch is 2 2-rope rappels. Aug 7, 2009

[Hide Comment] Nice intro to Tuolumne knob climbing. The P2 anchors are hard to see until you are right on them. Fun climbing. Aug 5, 2015
