First pitch is excellent and well protected, and it would be a great pitch for first trad leads/follows. Second pitch likely has lost some varnished holds over the years and even the start is a few grades harder than the first pitch. Climb past the obvious midway rappel station just left of the drainage/seam referred to as a "chimney" in the description, passing two additional antique pins.

Rappelled in 4 pitches with single 60M rope down Battle of Wills (chimney just south/below Intersection Ledge). Jun 13, 2017
