This is the second and third pitch of Bowers Crack, should have been finished months ago but procrastination takes its toll. Really fun route that varies from fingers to hands on all pitches. Another great way to summit this wall.

P1: 5.9 80ft
Climb Bowers Crack, all gear to a 2 bolted belay ledge (mini).

P2: 5.9 90ft ****
Continue up tips seem. Traverse on good holds into a hand crack/chimney. Exit in front of horn to beginning of massive "hallway like" chimney. Immediately climb left up and over a finger crack to anchors of Jingoist on a comfy belay ledge.

P3: 5.9 160ft
From belay ledge traverse right into a crack which exits to a face (bolt). Pass the bolt and traverse back left to a series of cracks.(Thin) Here you meet up with jingoist. Follow mellow ground to the Garfield anchors.

Decent: Rappel the route. Two 70m get you to the base of Bowers Crack.
