Description 

Two pitches. The second pitch is a beautiful hands to tight hands to big fingers splitter. The first pitch is a "tower" type pitch with wiggling behind pillars and such. Not too bad. Worth doing to get to P2.

P1- 5.10 110'. Book says 5.9, but the last part feels pretty hard and the whole thing is squirelly and a bit run. I can only imagine somebody saying "Gosh, honey, the book says its only 5.9, why don't you lead it." Then watching their relationship being ripped asunder by yet another big hands to fist totter-fest.

P2- 5.11+ 70'. Use to be called 12-, book says 5.11. If Pente is 5.11, then this is a little harder.


Location 

On the prow of The Reservoir between sun and shade.


Protection 

P1- Variety on the bigger end. Bring a #5 camalot. Save a couple #3 camalots for last part to the ledge.

P2- Hands to tight hands to big fingers.

The anchor on the second pitch should be evaluated by future parties. I was up there last weekend and it's looking like some pretty faded tat on some pretty sharp hangers. I didn't have any extra webbing on me but just a heads up to future parties. Sweet climb though.
