This route is called, "Dual Track," first pitch graded 11a, 5 bolts 50 feet, second pitch 12b 3 bolts 30 feet, bolted and FA in 2018 by Adam Nolte and Shannon Stuart-Smith. This route was split into two pitches due the abrupt change about midway in climbing and difficulty. Pull out from under a low roof to get established on the face, moving up on easier slabby terrain to an obvious protruding ledge on jugs to the first set of anchors, (5 bolts, 50 ft). Pull over the ledge to the second pitch of intense crimps and long lockoffs; need an attentive belay for the second pitch to avoid the ledge.

If you take the sit down before the crux, 11b feels right. Going straight for it, may be a grade harder. This thing is perfectly bolted, and a really fun climb, start to finish. Still haven't tried the extension.

I'll change the details on MountainProject, currently listed as "Ghost Rider". I really, really like this line. Great warmup for the harder routes at this crag. Steep, then weird and slabby, then steep again. Thanks for the perfect bolting too, Shannon. 11a? I hear ya! Gotta have a hardest 11a around I guess.
