DescriptionSee Sandia Rock by Mick Schein (2003, Sharp end Publishing) for a good description.
Schein's guide indicates to belay P2 near a tree. We set a belay lower at about 30 meters from the start, just right of the short chimney (semi-hanging belay). From that lower belay one can head up about 10 feet, get in some pro, and traverse left to the finger crack. If the belay is set this way, I'd give the second pitch a "great" rating, and first pitch is "okay" to "good" and needs pruning as of June 2009.
LocationStarts about 50 feet up and left of Good Clean Fun on an ample ledge with two alder trees (June 2009): one young and short, one around five inches in diameter and broken off at the trunk.
