Starting the P2 crux section through the headwall....


Two pitches of stellar and bold climbing that will leave you wanting more.....or running away with your tail between your legs.

Pitch 1. Climb up to that high bolt. Launch up and left and then trend right to a stance, beneath a roof and good gear. Climb up and left to a bolt. Climb the amazing and sustained face to a double bolt anchor. 100 ft

Pitch 2. Climb up and left, getting gear whenever possible, to a perch beneath a bolt. Move right then up to a shallow left facing arch/corner feature passing 2 more bolts(Amazing!). Head up a few moves and then traverse left on great holds to a ledge and a double bolt anchor. 85 ft


From where the trails meets the rock, head up and left about 100ft to a small vegetated ledge. Starts beneath a bolt about 15 ft up.

I am in the group wanting more! This thing is awesome. Very well protected when the climbing is hard, and not always when it is easy. Great gear recommendation Tim. I thought the P1 first bolt was the hardest section on the route.

There is now very cool optional 2nd pitch that climbs the steep clean wall between the regular 2nd pitch and "Two In Agreement". It's probably as good as the standard 2nd pitch but it's more likely to be dry.
