Description:

Great climbing up a nice long arete leads to easier but sustained climbing on the second pitch. First pitch is 35 meters! Be aware of your rope length as you'll need a 70m rope to lower or rap from first anchor or downclimb the last 15 or 20 feet to the ground without a belay. Pitch one: 11a. Pitch two: 12a

Descent Options:

No topout, you'll have to rap or lower...and maybe downclimb a bit depending.
