This is an extension (not a second pitch) of Choss Family. Continue on from the the Choss Family anchors past 8 more bolts. This route is very steep and can be done from the ground with a 60 meter rope. This is a new route so be careful of rock fall, I cleaned as much as I could, but I wouldn't sit or belay under someone climbing.

Sweet route. Still needs a little cleaning, I knocked off a rock or two, and a few of the holds up high were a tad sandy. Regardless, it's a great line with good moves the whole way, with a fun and tricky crux up high.

Hardest 5.12c I've ever been on. I've tried it once or twice every year the past 4 years, and I still cannot send. New guidebook puts it at 5.12d in addition to Choss Family being 5.11d, which I agree with.
