From Sean Peters:
The second pitch traverse is around 80 feet with minimal gear. The climbing is never difficult but a fall would be painful at best. Along the traverse you will pass one bolt and notice a rotten piton and one Los Banditos "Bad Bolt" on your way to the one bolt belay ledge. Unless you traverse way low you should come into the vertical crack right about the level of the belay ledge. The old belay bolt can be backed up with small gear.
Pitch three heads straight up off the belay into nice crack that gets easier the higher you climb. Basically you end up at the bottom of the chimney system of "Glory Road". We belayed here before traversing left on medium ledge to access the 5.9 crack. A quick mantle and short traverse left gets you to the base of crack. Small gear is key with one or two medium (#1's). Finish on easy face to summit.
