P1: Start up rock on the left side of the gully, then stem up the gully to the first bolt on the right wall. Clip the bolt and move onto the wall. Make some tricky moves (9+) past the second and third bolts. Continue up face and cracks and move left to a steeper headwall. Climb straight up from here to a ledge by a pine tree and a two-bolt anchor. 5.9+, 100'. P2: Step right from the anchor onto an arete. Clip a bolt and move up to the right side of a roof. Traverse left above the roof to a slab. Climb the slab (fun moves!) past three more bolts to a small roof with a hand crack. Get pro in the crack (#1 or #2 Camalot), step up and clip a bolt above the roof, and crank over the lip (10a; easier if you're tall). Continue up face and cracks, heading toward the arete on the right. Climb the arete to the top of the pinnacle, and a 2-bolt anchor (shared with Border Crossing and The B Boys). 5.10a, 110'.
