About 15 feet right of Son of a Bitchy Virgin, pull through obvious overhang and continue up and trending right to a belay next to a small cedar tree. P. 2 continues up face and through blocky overhang on small right-facing corner to GT ledge (route-finding!)

The opening move is fun – moving up past an overhang. Then it’s G climbing till the belay ledge, shared with Bitchy Virgin, but more to the left. There’s a small cedar tree on the ledge, and the route is to the left of the tree. But I made a mistake and belayed Josh & Deb up on the right side of the tree. We had to do another small traversing pitch to the correct belay station. That was more to my liking, because there was better pro to the left of the cedar. The second pitch also opens with a roof, and was harder to protect. Left me feeling quite nervous in several places, but I was able to complete the climb mostly happily. PG - R in some spots. The first moves of the second pitch, i.e. before the roof and before my 1st piece of pro, were really nice buckets – almost like the rungs on a ladder. Most of the climb was easy, just hard to protect. We tied the 2 ropes together and rapped down in one long rap. A lot of the rock seemed loose and / or hollow near the end of p2. I was reluctant to put cams behind it or even step on it in some spots.
