|Test Pilots Buttress
P1: very thin, sequential face moves with the trickiest section near the 4th bolt at the top 5.10+. Belay at tree
P2: Great! Undercling to TCU's to 4 bolts and a bolted anchor. Nice hidden crimps and a high reach roof
20 feet right of "5.8 Crack", begin at left leaning flakes down low to a crimpy face
4-5 bolts P1, 4 bolts P2 with tcu's intermixed

I've always felt like the crux is at the first bolt. There is some pump that follows at the top. The first, third, and fourth bolts are tough to clip if you are short.

Tricky moves , hard 10 P1 but P2 is the best part.

I skip the last bolt on the first pitch, finding it easier to climb out left. Makes for a bit of a run to the anchors, but whatever.
