View from black Widow second pitch

Description 

Pitch 1 is 5.10a, has 8 bolts, and is about 90 feet. There are two sets of chains: first for top rope, second for belaying the second pitch.

Pitch 2 is 5.10d, has 15 bolts, and is about 95 feet. There's a nice belay ledge at the top of this pitch.

Pitch 3 is 5.9, has 8 bolts, and is about 55 feet. It's best to be lowered down to the ledge to belay the second, avoiding an awkward hanging belay.

Location 

Route 6.

Protection 

Bolts and chains.

Fun route with good views, also the only route we got on all day without any bees or wasps. Watch out for choss on the top pitch. Lowering the leader is definitely a good idea, as recommended in the book. No reason to hang out at the top of this one for an uncomfortable belay.

First two pitches amazing; significant choss on third pitch.
