The lead is a little scary, the party behind us thought so too. Info here on second pitch is wrong. It is more like 3 threads and 4 bolts. To do it as 1 pitch it would be less than 60 m but the rope drag would be horrible.
From the top of pitch 1 go up then traverse right, pass a bail point with a bunch of threads and bail biners/quick link, go straight up from here to one more thread, this leads to an amazing belay ledge in the Golden Ball. You can access the climbs of the Golden Ball from here for one more pitch of 6a+, 6b+, or 7b.
We rappelled with one 60 meter rope. It requires back clipping to get back to the top of pitch 1. The rappel from the top of pitch 1 was about 28 m.

Thanks for the comment Ken. I cleaned up the description... at least that's how I remember it. If I'm wrong someone please let me know.
Hopefully this wall will be getting Titanium soon, but it's out of my hands for now.
