Me too. So who's done the second pitch and can vouch for this? Is the climbing above really that good?

The second pitch is some kind of 5.easy. Nothing the matter with it, but way out of the leagues of the first pitches. In the old days, we used to do it and then solo down the Bunny (to link with the free-soloing thread). Lotsa luck trying that nowadays.

In the modern genre, the second pitch doesn't come close to "you haven't done it unless" standards.

Rich, are you one of those people who adds the word "the" onto the names of climbs?? Do you call it The Arrow?

The Spring, either via the original finish to the left of P1 (scary) or straight up after P1 (the logical line). When I first did The Spring, P1 didn't even count. It was P2 that everyone talked about.

Dana reminded me of P2 of Criss. Had forgotten there was a P2. It's annoyingly hard.

Thinking...there are some hard second pitches or variations to second pitches that don't get done, but aren't particularly worth doing. P2 of Roseland is 5.9 I think, but junky. There's that P2 Bragg variation to the Freeway...

How about P2 and P3 of Elder Cleavage? Wild Horses, Raunchy, Gory Thumb. Those all have pretty hard 2nd pitches that are rarely done.

Without looking at a guide, that's the best I can do. My Gunks memory is pretty pathetic.

I thought p2 was pretty cool. It had a tenuous open-book mantle type move that I don't get a lot of in the Gunks. P3 was, um, yeah, kinda junky.
