Comments: I'd say it's defintiely worth doing P2 and just play around with variations. Straight up from bolts for 5.4 P2, left 20 ft from the bolts on the ledge and up the face to left of overhang for the 5.3 faceclimb. I did a fun variant by going straight up 30 ft then traversing left round the arete on a nice ledge and then straight up the 5.3 face past the piton.

Comments: as of Nov 18th 2012 the rap station halfway up the route looked very sketchy, webbing quite worn.

Comments: Great climb with a whole mix of variety. P1 takes small gear, as of 11th Nov 2012 there are fresh slings at the belay/rap station. P2 is quite a bit longer, nice crux move pulling a small overhang then sustained juggy climbing up the face. Takes lots of tricams and cams in C4 0.4 range. Couple of loose blocks to watch out for. Trees at top for anchor, slung for rappel as of 11th Nov 2012.

Comments: First pitch is nice, second pitch is easy but not much gear. Brings you to a nice ledge where you have a good view of climber's making "the move" on High E. You can walk over to the High E belay ledge too. Third pitch is messy and not worth doing unless you want to get to the top. Bolted anchors all the way.

Comments: Pretty straight forward route to practice lead on. Doesnt seem like it is climbed too often as quite a bit of grass etc growing on it. Not much pro on P2, small cams go well on the lower crux part of P2. As of Oct 2012 there is a tree half way up you can sling followed by a bomber rock column, so take a couple of extra single length runners.

Comments: Nice fun route, just got to take your time looking for the next holds and maybe run your pro out a bit to the next bomber hold and placement rather than hanging on trying to place something.
