Pitch 2: Continue up the crack which turns into an offwidth dihedral right after the anchors. This is the technical crux of the route at 5.10. At the top of the dihedral you'll see two bolts off to the right. This is the top of another route. When you see the first bolt, traverse left and continue up another 25 feet of easy climbing to the large belay ledge with a bolted anchor.
Pitch 3: Sandy slab with a bolt to a sandy dihedral to a few sandy slab moves to the bolted anchors.
Pitch 4: sandy 5.8 crack to a bolted headwall with a scary looking pile of rocks for a back step. Tread lightly in spots.
Enjoy the views from the top of the mesa. They are spectacular.
From what I understand you can rap off the route in four single rope raps, I'm not sure if you can do it with a 60, but think so. For the third rap, use the anchors that you saw off to your right while climbing the second pitch.
