Bryan Barnett climbing the 2nd pitch of Blind Fate

Description 

Second pitch is the money pitch.

P1. Climb up ramps and bulges to through one 3+/4 section of climbing to the base of the curtain to the top. (mostly 3+ climbing) Great anchor location at the left of the 2nd pitch just below the overhanging rock. (no known fixed anchor)

P2 climb up and right and up final column for 50-75 feet. Anchor on right side about 10' beyond lip of the gully.

Location 

Approach is on the West side of the Notch. Begin the hike up at the first turn about 60 meters down from the stone hut. This climb is directly across from Ragnarock. It is the obvious right climb in the amphitheater.

Protection 

Screws (Rap station at top new as of 2/2011) - cord on tree w/locker.
