DescriptionGave this a "Great" rating just for P1. P2 is okay. Can rap from the top of P1 with a 60 meter rope.
P1: Start to right of a large shoulder of rock and traverse up and left on little pro to the bottom of the dihedral and a bolt. Continue up the dihedral past another bolt (5.7) and find bolted anchor with chains a little left of the top of the dihedral. 30 meters.
P1 var: Make a direct start in a kind of alcove below and slightly left of the dihedral in the below photo. This is a higher quality start if perhaps a bit more spice-y.
P2: Climb up while trending slightly right through black rock with some pro; watch for looseness. Follow grassy ledge or ramp - initially steep - up and right to find above a right facing corner or slot and ascend it. Make the first couple moves into the corner and clip the now revealed bolt on the right. The route continues straight up the corner, passing to the left of a large bush and then up to the top.
P2 var courtesy of kevinnlong: If you go straight up from the belay - left of the black rock - to the roof and traverse right to the corner, then P2 is quite good. The traverse right is well protected, has great rock / position, and feels like solid 5.8.
P2 alternative as shown in the 1985 topo: Traverse right over to Spiderman's P1 bolted anchor and finish on the second pitch of Spiderman.
