The first pitch climbs a clean dihedral to a ledge. From the ledge, the second pitch goes through a bulge, then follows an easier wide crack to the top. The bulge on pitch 2 is strenuous, with potential for landing on a ledge (bring an extra hand-size peice to protect this).

4 out of 5 stars great climb

As it is not a ST climb, expect to have this one to yourself. That said, a great 2-pitch climb! First pitch is fun jamming & liebacking up the dihedral (.8 to .10a). I would call the first 15' of the 2nd pitch the crux- extremely strenuous jamming/stemming/sidepulling (any way you go about it, it will be a struggle) to surmount the bulge- this protects well with a nut &/or #1 Camalot or equivalent. A ~20' .7 off-width (4-5"(?) pro) slightly slows down the cruiser ride above. The mobs on top of DAFF will wonder what you are doing across from them.
