An excellent alternate start to After Six with committing crack climbing and much less polish.
120ft (5.8) Hand and finger crack climbing leads to face climbing at the crux. Belay near the large manzanita.
140ft (5.7) A hand crack leads to low angle scrambling to gain the ledge.
Rappel with 2 ropes (a single 70m rope may or may not suffice), or join up with pitch 3 of After Six.
Pro to 2".
