Carter taking off for the second pitch

Description 

This two pitch climb looks wide, but it doesn't climb wide. Start on a slab with a perfect hand crack that you wish would go on forever. But, since it doesn't so you must climb the wider, dirty chimney above to a ledge on the far right to make a belay.

Pitch 2 crosses the dirt covered ledge and ascends the wide, right facing dihedral above. Climb the corner using face holds on either side for help to the top of the right wall of the dihedral. From the ledge, continue up and right into a loose chimney to exit the cliff onto the top to set a belay. Save a large cam or two for the belay on top of the cliff.

Location 

The start is located just right of the "Paper Street Soap Company project" on a short slab with a perfect hand crack making the start.

Protection 

Cams of all sizes, with extra wide stuff! Extra #3, #4, and #5 would help protect the route and build an anchor on top.
