3 out of 5 stars Away from the crowds

A nice spot on a busy day - we had it to ourselves. Easily did New Patriot as a single 37m pitch with no rope drag(14 draws, plus anchor). Belayed from the top, then descended in two raps - stopping after the first rap to climb the leftward line of Heartbeat as a short single-pitch. In retrospect, presuming the guidebook pitch lengths are right, I could have just barely lowered back to the first anchor, thereby avoiding one rap(If you try this, be sure your belayer is already tied in just in case a 60m rope isn't quite enough!). Both lines are soft for the grade at 5.9 and comfortably bolted, with mostly good holds and very brief slabby cruxes.

Nice line for those new to multipitch. Not that committing and easy to descend.
