I only did P1. Undercling the large flake while working your feet up the slab at the start. Mantle up, do some thin face and dihedral stemming, and finish with a good roof. Plenty of fun in this short 60' pitch!

4 out of 5 stars Rough Boys

An often overlooked mini-classic, climbed both pitches with ambler on a brilliant autumn afternoon. First pitch is great, certainly not "G," but reasonably well protected with tiny nuts and committing climbing. Fell on second pitch's perma-slime after a hard rain earlier in the week. I'll take an onsight for p.1 (don't want to fall on that anyway) and an environmental fall on p. 2. ***p. 2 (5.10-): traverse right 20-30 feet until the edge of thick lichen, then climb the obvious left slanting thin crack past a couple of pitons and up to the top. One 60m rap from a slung tree just barely makes it down.
