On Oct. 30, 2012, I climbed from the low point of the Second Pew up the slab, with no pro until I could sling a small (but not tiny) tree. I moved rightish to a left-facing flake system that diagonals left. I gingerly liebacked and stemmed up this flake system, being careful with fragile rock (5.8+). At the top of the lieback, I threw a double-length sling behind a tiny shrub/tree (the most solid pro since the tree), then climbed up and leftish, past some loose blocks. I reached an alcove above a big bush and slung a couple of blocks for anchorage. Above lay the lichened crack of Is this Your Crack?

On the second pitch, Leo traversed left to a short chimney and followed it straight up to a nice dihedral/groove. Excellent face climbing was found on the face right of the groove. At its top, you may follow A Way to the Top, or traverse straight right (5.7) to a two bolt anchor atop Face with Bolt. Pro opportunities were merely occasional. The second pitch could be approached by other ways.


Start at the low point of the right side of the Second Pew.


SR through #3 Camalot. Leo placed a funky #3 1/2 Camalot on the p.2 traverse. A # 8, 9 or 10 Hex MAY work there. Or maybe a funky #4 C4.
