One of the only routes at Barrett's Cove that's got more than a couple of bolts. Pandora starts in a gully to the left of Charlotte's Crack, where P1 begins by heading up a dicey slab section (5.10) past 3 bolts to a notch in a small roof. Pull through the roof (5.7) and set up a hanging belay at the bolted anchor. P2 heads up and right to the first bolt, then straight up the steep slab (5.8+) past some horizontals and a few more bolts.

First pitch is good, not sure I'd call three close bolts "spicey" though. A recent guidebook argues that going straight through the bolts (rather than left of them) is 5.10c, I'd put it at 5.9+/5.10a. My wife hadn't roped up since April and she didn't have a problem following this pitch either. The second pitch is really sustained but a bit monotonous. Then again, the same move over and over can be fun - because it's a good move.
