3 out of 5 stars second pitch is exciting

after the crux, the second pitch runs out. Williams calls it 5.4 R, which is about right. It is possible to put a small tcu into a shallow parallel up there, but this is a spicy 5.6

3 out of 5 stars Son of Bitchy Virgin, very scary

Fun yet scary lead, I ran it out at least 25 feet on the second pitch. Good face climbing on the last half of the second pitch.

2 out of 5 stars scary 5.6?

Maybe I did it wrong, or was just plain old stupid that day, but I only had 2 pcs for the entire 2nd pitch. I had crazy run out and faced a definite factor 2 fall, going past my belayer (thanx Brett for not killing me) if I peeled. I didnt find any placements at all. Thankfully it all went smooth and nobody was hurt, mainly me.
