Nice work Greg. Super fun 2nd pitch. worthy. I did a bit of trundling on the top half of the 1st pitch... it could use a bit more. A belay anchor below the 2nd pitch would be ideal for the belayer but might be overkill. Fun climbing. Thanks.

Great addition! Beautiful rock. Top 3 pitches are all fantastic! After pitch #1, we used a BD #2 and .75 for the mixed portion of the second pitch between bolts...those were the last pieces of gear that we used on the route.
