Description:

Climb the first part of The Nose to the fixed pin and then travers left along a flake to another pin and belay. The next pitch heads straight up the fist/hand crack through a small roof to a bolted anchor.

Descent Options:

Rappel. You can climb to the top of the formation and scramble off climbers right but that is not very enjoyable.

3 out of 5 stars Fun Second Pitch

The first pitch has some enjoyable climbing, about 30 ft. out of the 100. The first 50 ft. or so is really junky rock with no pro. The second pitch is the business and is really good. Good rock, good gear, fun climbing.
