The Fat Lady

The 5.8 P1 of the Fat Lady with Mary on lead.
Wonderful trad climbing with a blocky corner, a fantastic splitter and an ending that ain't over till that large woman sings.
P1 Climb the blocky corner to a large ledge and move left to belay.
P2 Move up the fantastic splitter, exiting right through a steep notch. Double bolt anchor.
Located about midways down lower Hawksbill at a left facing corner.
Tcu's, stoppers, camalots to gold.

If you belay at P1, a #3 and #4 camalot would be great for the belay, otherwise you will burn a bunch of TCU's.

It's possible to lead this in a single pitch as well. At least that way you won't have to make a belay and burn a bunch of gear. On the down side you're belayer might not be able to see you. I don't remember it being to hard to get good gear off the ledge.
