3 out of 5 stars Did P2

P2 is very interesting. It's hard to get started (use the tree), and it's tough to find gear for the first 20 feet (unless you go right). There is loose rock below the crux, be very careful. Crux was easy and fun. Finish was up through a jungle. Rap is over to to climbers left. Tree was a bit suspect, make sure you inspect the slings as well.

4 out of 5 stars Raining

What to do? climb the easy un-named climb, traverse and set up a TR on Rauncy. Climbed it in the rain. Makes the opening moves crazy stupid!
