Description:

Reminscent of a Gunks climb, full of horizontal cracks on a route that wanders. Use either double ropes or extend your slings on the first pitch, the second pitch is a technical face climb with a "thank god" hanger half-way up. On the second pitch, escape left once you get to the roof, which can be well protected.

Did as one pitch with lots of long slings. Traversed 20-30 feet left from the bolt on pitch two. I thought this was easy for the grade, at 5'2", my wife thought it was reachy.

Went offroute near a rusty old pin- one of the most run-out fuckups in my climbing. way harder if you go offroute.

I don't know what happened on the P2. We were just looking for a climb to finish the day with...P1 went fine, but since it was getting dark decided to link P1&P2 which was a bad idea. Got the the last horizontal under the bolt and just couldn't commit to the move, was moving back and forth from left to right and just didn't feel it so I actually bailed, which was pretty nerve racking as well since I did tons of seriously high steps between the horizontals...
