L to R R to L Alpha
Good climbing on a steep slab with pebbles and a few pockets. The crux pitch wanders a bit, but is quite sustained, with the first half in the 10 range, and the second half starting with the crux move and continuing with hard 10 moves to the top. The trad first pitch starts with an awkward move at about 10a as the corner switches from left to right facing. The upper corner on P1 is easier.
Just left of the start of Super Guide is a short, left-facing corner that peters out and becomes a right-facing corner. This is P1. See photo.
A light trad rack for P1 with some medium nuts and smaller cams. There are two fixed Leeper pins on the upper half of P1. The first looks very good. The second one is only half way in, but the climbing is easier on positive holds. P1 ends at a two-bolt belay with a good stance. 7 bolts plus the anchors for P2. You can place a good blue TCU or similar above the P1 belay to protect the moves out left to the first bolt. A #1/red Camalot with a long sling works nicely above and right of the last bolt to better protect the second.
