I did the El Tesoro variation start. It was fun. Start on El T, traverse left to bolt and anchor, skip building anchor and use belay anchors as bolts. The crack was sweet.

followed rob's lead on this - nice 2nd pitch crack works just like a ladder

an excellent first climb on the last day of the year - definitely see why it's a "classic." "Swung leads" with berkly, if you can say that on a two-pitcher that could be linked into one with the right slings . . . I took the easier first pitch, clipping the available bolt from Romper Room right off the bat then plugged in a #4 behind the huge flake; on the traverse across I even found a place for berkly's wee fatcam, as well as a .5 camalot & a #1, I believe, under the roofy thingy there . . . very comfy belay stations as well. The crack pitch is excellent, bomber stuff. Wholly enjoyable!

The sweet handcrack is this routes main attraction. Although instead of dividing it into two pitches, I suggest jumping the lip after you clip the only bolt with a 48" sling. This lets you traverse up to the hand crack without having much rope drag. Also allows you to link both pitches into one long 140 ft route. Well worth the approach.
