Super Pooper.
Passing the crux on Super Pooper
»
The Super Pooper as seen from the approach trail.  The upper belay is about 80 rope meters from the ledge where The Trough starts. It's best to brake the traverse into two pitches because of rope drag. <br /> <br />Belaying pitch 1 from the upper ledge is beneficial, there is less rope drag and the belayer has a better view of the climber. <br /> <br />On pitch 2, avoid the slab above the roof. Go left and then cut back right. Rope drag can get unpleasant here.

Your belays are wrong. First is fine, second is in the wrong spot, most do a third somewhere along the way.

this does seem like a different way to do the climb. with a 60m, you can combine the first two pitches, which makes for a nice belay ontop of the 5.8 cracks... i have not seen too many parties start SP from any other ledge than the one shown in photo.

I did the route this way linking to the belay at the base of the 5.8 finger crack with a 70m rope. No rope drag with use of slings.
