P1- 5.9, that starts with nice hand crack for 20 feet, up through twin hand cracks to nice ledge leading under a large boulder. anchors on top of large boulder. 3 bolt anchor with webbing
P2- 5.10 This is by far the crux pitch of the climb, and starts with fingers and ends with tight fists. (more of a arm jam) This is the endurance pitch and has small and sloppy feet, with one good rest.
P3- 5.10-. This was by far my favorite pitch. Pull a small roof out of a chimney right off the belay into a ever tightening chimney for approx 40-50 feet. The chimney accepts good pro towards the back. once you leave the chimney you come to a one bolt face climb which leads into a finger crack to the right or you can traverse the face back into a # 4-5 off width up to good 3 bolt anchor with webbing.
P4- 5.9-5.7. Need description

Does anyone know if the top of the fourth pitch still needs a bolt? I'll get up there and place one if I know for sure it needs it?
