Ten Minute Shift, 5.11b

2nd Pitch- 80’- 5.11b/ This is a sustained pitch at the grade but well protected. The first ¾’s of the pitch involves quite a few balancing moves. Right from the belay you must mantle up onto a curving ramp. A good finger ledge shows up after almost any hard move to help you advance up the pitch. Continue up this series of curving foot ledges until below the roof above. The roof offers a meter wide under-cling with nothing on top. Move left with the under-cling as you stem your feet until you can make the crux move of the route, a high reach into a finger crack. Place a piece of gear and make for the fixed belay at the base of the flaring chimney up and right.
