Pitch 1: Either start from the belay at the bottom of the Specter Wall, at the belay for My God, Your Godor over at Indie Dog Memorial Route. Head up the slab passing two bolts then traverse into blocky steepness, passing interspersed gear and one bolt to reach a broad ramp. Continue past a bolt to reach the anchors of Specter/Apparition. This is the easiest way to get to the top of the Specter Wall, making for a great way to work these routes..

Pitch 2: Scamper left from the belay and scramble to a high bolt before launching into 60' of tricky patina climbing, trending slightly right on decent holds to a reachy crux right below the lip. The anchor is over the top on a flat block, two bolts which are currently choking in multiple generations of webbing and cords, faded and rodent-munched. Bring a knife. 


Left of the Hidden Heavenly Slab.


Blue tcu-#3 camalot, lots of long runners to prevent drag. 
The bolts on top of P2 could use some fresh webbing or chains.
