Living on the Edge, 5.10c

2nd Pitch- 80’- 5.10c/ This is definitely the crux pitch of the climb. Some leaders would prefer to bring a few medium cams to help with the first moves from the belay, but these moves are well below the grade of the pitch. The crux of the pitch begins as you pull the roof above sideways to your left on suspect sandy crimps with a bolt for good pro at that juncture. Follow the sandy face trending left all the while. Many times you cannot see the next bolt and the pitch can be hard to follow. Sustained moves continue upward at a leftward angle until you mantel up onto the large sandy belay ledge with a fixed station.
