Recommended variation on P2 (as described here) is to layback the first stuff as usual but then head up and slightly right to the bottom of this splitter crack. 5.9 on the Rossiter topo, but it goes easy for Lumpy 9. As it fades, traverse straight left (5.8 face) to the bolts.

Scoping out the 5.9 finish. We turned the triangle roof right (top right of photo) after short thin fingers dihedral. Spicy! Trend right above that on nice easy liebacking to another challenging roof. A great next pitch addition to the Hiatus P3 black groove 5.8R. Lumpy delivers time and time again.

Short mixed options left and right of the ice and a good belay ledge make this a good learning ground - 12/12/2013.

From walk-off descent, a better perspective on steepness of the route, and a 3 pitch option which worked well for us - WI3+ - 11/2013.
