Second Move is a bolted arete to the left of First Move. It is slightly overhanging for the first twenty feet and definitely pumpy, but less chossy than it looks. The moves are fairly interesting, even include some crack holds higher up.


Left of First Move and sharing chains with it.


Second Move can be done as 4 bolts to a two-bolt anchor but is generally top roped from First Move, clipping a bolt or two for a directional.

Nice climb and a good warm up. It can also be linked to the chains from Halitosis Monkey. The crack is big and friendly enough to practice hand jams, but watch for bat droppings. They are not that terrible, but we found a lot of them all piled up inside the crack a couple times. You can avoid them almost completely using the holds around the crack instead of jamming, if need be.
