Description:© (Breezy)

Named after the key that has "two sharp pitches".

Start: Start below the major line capped by a huge chockstone on the right wall of the pipe

  1. 25m (10) Bridge up slick groove splitting bottom half of the buttress and under the boulder. It's a good idea to belay on top of the boulder.

It is possible to escape here through the narrow cleft to the left between Piccolo Pipe and D Major Pipe

  1. 25m (10) From top of the boulder climb steep juggy buttress to chimney finish. An alternative to this pitch is to climb the chimney to the left. This is very narrow.
