4 out of 5 stars first time swinging leads...

Use long runners on p1 if you don't want alot of drag.
Decking possible between bolts 1 and 2.
I didn't think the entry move was 5.4 more like 5.6.
You CANNOT rappel from p1 with a 60m rope.
tradtimbo was either on a 70m and didn't know it or their rope stretches like a bungee.
I left a screwlink on the first bolt so folks can rap to the ground with a 60m. You could downclimb but the last move or two would be tricky - why chance it? A 3/8"screwlink costs $2.35
Super fun climb to swing leads.
All pitches have solid anchors and rap rings.
At the top of P1 you'll find a rappel anchor plus two bolts for your bottom anchor to belay P2.
olmc said P2 is runout - COMPLETELY FALSE - nicely spaced bolts and fun climbing
P1 follows a weird line initially, feels contrived and is a poor choice of line until it gets out on the arete.
Nice position and exposure, decent rock quality.
