There are 2 ways to climb the second pitch. About 2/3rds of the way up just left of the center line of the climb there is a thin vertical seem that you can lay back on which adds a variety of moves instead of climbing slightly right of center. Al had pointed this lay back out to me and it is a nice version that is slightly more challenging.
Al.....what are your thoughts?

Interesting moves at the bottom of the 3rd pitch. I think that it helps to be tall there.

not really, Joe is NOT tall! look at his picture on the NEC home page. it's shows you exactly the holds to use for the crux move.

glad you like the climbs.

Really fun moves off that third pitch...very bouldery and dynamic. very well protected and exposed. Good find up there...done it three times this season already!  :D
