Comments: Two cents from a geezer who leads 11 only on a good day, any more, for what it's worth: the P2 crux is neither soft nor 1-2 moves. Crusher had it right....

Pitches 2 and 3 are stellar!

Comments: Approach is steeper than SOB, looser and more poison ivy than either SOB or Cruise. Corner gets shade until noon in June / good rock where it counts.

Comments: A #3 Camalot, maybe the #2 Camalot to belay in the crack below and left of P7, a little blue Camalot or yellow Alien, the red Alien and 8 or so quicks are all you need besides kit to clip the two-bolt anchors and a 60m rope. 3-4 hours up and down - a series of aerial boulder problems linked by a ridge with great views.

Comments: Starting P2 with no idea how steep and long that tower above will be to finish it.

Comments: Thanks for posting, Chris. P7 is a blast (my favorite), and, while P8 is mostly easy, if you do the 10b direct option, P9 is the crux - exciting, airy, and really caps the route even if you choose the 5.9 original finish. Bolted anchors all the way, so you can rap the route on one 60m rope.

Comments: P1 and 2 can be linked if you start from the ledge just down and right of the start of Comic Relief (a short down-climb into the peg gully). Great route. P3 is one helluva ride: long, continuously challenging and fun, with just enough foothold. Upper 9s laughing all the way....
