4 out of 5 stars Fun second pitch to Transporter Crack 5.6

climbed this as a second pitch to Transporter Crack 5.6. After a short traverse left from the anchors at the top of transporter crack, follow crack up the middle of the face. It is the second prominent crack you will come to when traversing, the first is Impulse Power 5.4.
I was nervous to rap from these anchors because I was over 80 feet up and couldn't see if the rope reached the ground when I trough it so I rapped to the anchors at transporter crack and did it in two rappels. Other comments imply that you can rap from these anchors but I would imagine you need at least a 60 m rope.
