P1 5.8: Trend left over ledges, then up and back right past two newer bolts to an older, original first [lone] bolt. Then move right and up to a nice left-trending finger crack with good pro on easier terrain. At end of this crack find bolt above and continue up to a horizontal weakness with gear placements. Make a move or two left along the weakness and then up past another bolt and beyond to gear anchors with chains. 30 meters. (note: I have not done the run-out start to the first bolt and deduce it from historical beta provided by others MP.com users)
P1 Var, ~5.9 (perhaps part of a different route): To the right of the original P1 start, climb up past the line of four bolts (crux 5.9). Then trend left and up to the nice left-trending finger crack with good pro. Finish P1 as above.
P2, 5.6: Climb up and a little left from the anchor. Find what pro you can while continuing up and trending just a little more left to the bottom of a gully. Felt 5.6 and run-out but may have passed up an opportunity for gear placement (i.e., maybe a ~4 inch cam or, alternatively, a ~1/2 inch cam?). Ascend the gully to the top. Less than 30 meters.
Some two-pitch trad / mixed routes on Red Wall.
I recall at least one of the P1 "bolts" having a star pattern on the head of the nail - probably one of the last two bolts. Star Dryvin nail-and-sleeve bolts have this pattern and have inferior strength. Back it up!
