Description 

Pitch 2 is the left line of bolts above the anchor of Sign of the Times (there is a 12b called Hypernova going right). The route follows a prominent black streak up gently overhanging stone on crimps and small pockets. It goes through a small roof with 12a move at the 2nd to 3rd bolt, followed by a decent rest. It then moves right to a big sidepull, then back left again up a very shallow dihedral. The crux starts at the last bolt with small sidepulls and high feet. The route ends with your hand on the top of the cliff band while you are clipping the anchors. Would get more love it it wasn't a second pitch.

Location 

Left of the Killer Cave. Second pitch of Sign of the Times. You can do the route to the left (Powder finger) as an alternate starting pitch, but you have to climb some unprotected 5.6 to get to the first anchors. You can get down comfortably that way with a 60 meter.

Protection 

Bolts. Be careful lowering as a 60 meter will barely get you down if you do the first SOTT pitch.
