2nd Pitch- 140’- 5.10b/ Even though the 6th pitch is rated at a higher grade, many consider this 2nd pitch the crux of the climb. In reality, pitches 2, 3, 5 and 6 are all sustained and challenging for their respective grades. Pitches 3 and 5 require more gear placement. Follow at least 15 bolts straight up maybe placing a piece or two along the way. Note that you will pass a rappel station on your left. This is the rappel station you want to use to rap the route to the ground on descent versus the belay at the top of the 2nd pitch.
