Description 

P1: Climb the large, left-facing corner system to an off-width that widens the higher you go. Just before you start into the off-width there is a horizontal crack where you can plug a black tri-cam (I've also used an offset blue/purple master cam). Use the #4 Cam a little ways up, then crank up the off-width to the ledge above. Good idea to place a re-direct piece on the main wall here, then step right to the anchors.(Cold shuts)

P2: Continue up the dirty corner system (a bit of a bushwhack) until you reach a really nice, clean corner system. Climb the corner system all the way to Lower Broadway Ledge.

Location 

Just uphill from T&T and Don't Think Twice. Technically the start is up Worrel's Thicket a little bit. Look for two bolts down low and left of a large, left-facing corner. The bolts are on Don't Think Twice; R&R is the corner.

Protection 

Standard rack. Black tri-cam and a #4 BD Cam are helpful; no need for a #5.

As of 01SEP2012 there is a Wasp nest at the top of P1 on the main wall just as you pull up onto the ledge. You can avoid it by sticking close to the pine tree as you pull up. I've done the route twice with it there and have managed to place a piece above for a re-direct to the anchors and then moved over to the ledge and the anchors without getting stung.

If you don't want to do the first pitch with the offwidth (just don't have the gear, etc) you can climb Worrel`s Thicket for about 30-35ft to the ledge that P2 starts from. You`ll end up walking slightly downhill to the anchors; be careful because the leafs can be decieving.

The corners on P2 are amazingly fun. One of my favorites in the grade for sure.

As of 10/8/13, there's a yellow jacket ground next stepping off of the P1 belay anchors to the right. This is different than the wasp's nest that Any referred to in 2012, which was there in October 2013.

Best to start up Worrel's and then link over to get to the nice inside left corner climbing.
