Not sure exactly what climb this is describing, but here's how we did it:

Pitch 1: The Phantom, 5.7+, 45'. Steep fingerlocks to a ledge.

Pitch 2: ?, 5.7, 100'. Headed straight up past two older, but good bolts to a right leaning crack. Follow this as it thins, then goes vertical. The crack widens to offwidth and heads straight at the top anchors for the Phantom. Fortunately you can climb outside it easily without jamming the sharp rock. Gear would be Standard Rack, with a large piece or two. (#5 max, #4 might work).
