Endless Bliss from the P2 anchors

Description 

Endless Bliss is the obvious and popular slab route on the right side of Gun Show. Begin by following a flake up and right, then launch into the business of the climb, connecting intermittent edges with thinner and harder moves. The main challenge is trusting your feet and stepping off the edges as you get higher.

Climb all the way to the second anchor with a 60M rope for maximum enjoyment.

Protection 

Bolts. Two single-rope raps are needed to reach the ground.

Book calls it 10 something, but I'd say it's closer to 5.8 with a couple thoughtful moves required. Protection is a little killjoy. I ran both 'pitches' together using 9 draws and felt fine. Definitely fun and worth climbing!

A longish single pitch divided by a midway convenience rap anchor for those who don't have two ropes. Has many holds that are clearly chipped :-(. As others have said, it is over-bolted. Nonetheless, its a worthwile 5.8+ pitch of edging between juggy horizontal faults on the only outstanding face of rock in the immediate area. I figure without the chipped holds that it might have been a brilliant 5.11 friction test-piece.
