|First pitch was a breeze, which gave you a false sense of security for the secon pitch! First roof was at an awkward angle and fairly exposed. Second roof was totally fun and like a gym boulder problem. Well protected and big belay ledges.|

Great route - One of the best I've been on at the Gap.
Some additional info - Start in the same spot as you would for corkscrew. First pitch goes direct to the Juniper at 5.5 pg. Possible belays at the juniper or any of the small ledges up to 20' above it if you want to be closer to the crux.
2nd pitch goes up pretty easily to the roof, where some commitment, good hand jams, and small edges for your feet will get you past. Possible belay just after the roof to prevent rope drag. If you continue to the top, be careful to keep the rope out of that roof crack. The second roof is more of a physical grunt on huge incut jugs. Gear is plentiful at both roofs.
