P1 - 6 bolts, P2 - 4 bolts.
Climb the wide crack that diagonals up and left. At the top of the crack climb the cobble festooned face/arete past 6 bolts. The 2nd pitch climbs the bulge above the belay and moves out left through large knobs and loose looking flakes past 4 bolts. Going straight up the arete from the belay is solid and fun, but lacks protection. There are 3 bolts and chains on the summit.
It is possible to rappel the route in two rappels with a 60 meter rope, or better option is to climb over the summit to the anchors at the top of "Aqua Negro" and descend via two single rope rappels.

We had the Pangea Wall to ourselves. No one else at Texas Canyon. Great conditions, so we climbed the route a couple times and upgraded the hardware. The flies and bugs are really annoying in the afternoon. Fun climb.
A fun climb, Tethys offers interesting climbing on featured rock studded with cobbles, pockets, and the occasional loose flake. Protection is good, but the hardware is needing an upgrade, especially the P1 anchor. Definitely a route to do while at Texas Canyon, especially on warmer days.
