Description 

Wide fingers to small roof in dihedral p1; wandering face on slab (no real pro) to chimney.

Location 

NE corner of Japhead, wander up from east side to base of route in notch.

Protection 

Fingers to #4 camalot or big bro for exit chimney. Slung huge loose block for anchor on p1, not much pro on p2 for a spicy runout lead that I thought I wouldn't be able to back off once committed. Wander to top and walk SE to anchors on Crimson Crescent, rap double ropes.

1st pitch is a quality one, it really would be worthy of a rap anchor so you didn't have to do the sketchy second pitch.

location should read NE corner!
There is now a 2 bolt anchor atop the first pitch, awesome pitch worth coming back to, if not for the summit.

What is the difficulty of P2 slab?

The slab wasn't difficult, maybe 5.7 or 5.8 occasionally with no pro and a big fall.

Pitch one is great, 3 stars at least. Pitch 2 is not great, 1 star at most. I give it 2 stars overall.
