Pulling knobs and cobbles on P2 of "Tex-Mex&q...

Description 

"Tex-Mex" surmounts the overhung base of the Pangea Wall via five bolts. Once out of the etriers several free moves lead to the P1 anchor. The long 2nd pitch climbs up left of the ring anchor to a bulge that leads to a full pitch of cobble and knob pulling with the occasional pocket. This is a rope stretcher, so knot the ends of your rope and make two rappels with a 60 meter rope. With thoughtful use of slings on the overhang P1 & P2 can be linked.

Location 

Left side (east end) of Pangea Wall. Forty feet right of Shrike Crack.

Protection 

P1 - AO (5 bolts), P2 - 5.9 (11 bolts).

The A0 bolts are very reachy until the angle kicks back. Fun route.
