1st pitch is great, 2nd pitch isnt that special. the roof crack does look entertaining.

1st pitch was soaked 2nd was dry... Beautiful climb! Anchors on the tree weren't redundant so we fixed them. Make sure to go right at the top of the second pitch.

10/11/09 Left webbing at top of both pitches. Could not find any on second pitch. Also the cordalette left on second pitch looked to be chewe through a little but backups look good. we left the webbing just to be safe.
