Matty starting P1 Mystery Companion

Description 

Pitch 1: starts to the right of the two alternate starts to Office Party. This line is the furthest right of the three closely placed bolt lines. Climb to the right of the bush near the third and fourth bolts. This is a longer pitch with some fun moves up high. (5.6, 12 bolts, 110 feet)

Pitch 2: short with a reachy crux through a bulge. (5.10a, 6 bolts, 60 feet)

Pitch 3: fun climbing with interesting pockets. Ignore the single bolt out left. (5.10a, 9 bolts, 90 feet)

Pitch 4: this pitch splits into two different lines about mid-way up. The left line is 5.9, the right line is 5.10c. The 5.9 line surmounts a bulge up top using a hand crack, to the summit. (5.9, 10 bolts, 100 feet)

Descend the route with 4 rappels using a 70m rope.

Location 

Mystery Companion faces west and is on the far right side of the Sacred Trust Wall. To the left are the two alternate starts to Office Party. To the right is a lot of unclimbed rock; eventually the wall curves around to the south-facing side which features a number single pitch routes.

Protection 

12 quickdraws plus slings for the bolted anchors.

I thought this route was quite a bit better than Office Party. The two 10a pitches were short but sweet.

I thought the crux on the second pitch was significantly harder than 10a, maybe 11a. I think the first pitch is also sandbagged at 5.6, more like 5.8.
