Megan on the excellent finishing moves of Supergri...

Description 

P1: Start up a gully, pulling over a few bulges before reaching a 2 bolt anchor near a bush and dihedral. 8 bolts

P2: Instead of continuing up the crack/dihedral, clip a bolt, step down, and then traverse left on some inobvious crimps. A few more powerful moves past the next bolt lead to an awesome finish where incut edges abound. 7 bolts

You can link these pitches together with twin ropes or if you extend most of the bolts.

Rap with one rope in two rappels using the anchors on Window Shopper.

The first pitch needs some more climbing to clean up. An okay pitch.
P2 is much better, with a couple hard moves off the belay followed by more moderate face. Exposed and fun.

I thought the first pitch was great but probably only 5.9 or 5.10a.

Fun climbing! I agree with Ken about the first pitch - maybe 5.10a? A tricky, but well protected crux.

Yeah I'd say 10a for the first pitch, lotta loose stuff too. Second pitch is great
