Second pitch reaches the rim and is perhaps not freed yet. (Hard o/w... bring a buch of friend #6 and as many big bros you can find.)
Both pitches have been cleaned by Alf.

|I did the FFA of this pitch and called it 5.11... the next few people that i brought to try it said it was a world class sandbag at 5.11 oh well... sweet route!|

|This is one of my favorite pitches at the Creek. It is varied and has a little bit of everything, including a sporty finish if you dare use the super soft face holds outside the finger crack. This thing is proper 5.11, but perhaps sandbagged when compared to the typical 5.11 IC fare. Thanks Alf, enjoyed the tour on Party Ledge!|

i cleaned the whole pitch from the top, concentrating on the insane off width starting at 35 meters.
I gave the first pitch to adam, who worked it quickly, and gave it a classical grade.
He placed a marvelous equalized two bolt first anchor.
I have been top roping the second pitch, which I believe to be 5.12 off width.
It starts 6 cammalot and gets bigger slowly. There is about 8 meters of flake, and then the remainder of pitch 2 is straight in crack with curious face features here and there.
About 8 meters from anchor 2, there is a directional/protection bolt that keeps the rope to the right, and protects a section where big bros work poorly.
The second anchor is also two large chains. I have never made it past the directional bolt clean. The crack leans and is a tough size.

|I red-pointed the monstrous 2nd pitch of Goliath for the FFA. Recommended rack: 2x 6" cams (Wild Country fit better than BD), 3-4x Green Bros, 1x Blue Bro and a 9" Valley Giant is helpful. Burl blue-collar offwidthing -- physical and emotional whipping. I felt it was harder than the Mayor which is a bench-mark 12a.|
