Description:

P1: Short, sustained 5.9 that climbs up a face to an awkward layback crack. After the crack runs out, pull a small roof (don't traverse left into a bush) and clip the anchors. Makes for a good warmup. Many climbers only climb pitch 1 rather than continuing up P2 (40' pumpy overhanging 5.10D).

Descent Options:

Rap From 2 good bolts with rings ~80 ft from top of P2.

4 out of 5 stars decent warm-up

the extra 40' from the first bolts seemed to be easier than the 5.9 section.
