This adds about 15-20 feet of low-5th climbing to the route, but this is protectable if need be. We also scrubbed down and scraped out the crack, added some chains to the raw bolt hangers and cleared the trail as best we could.
I checked my step counter today - it's 650 steps from Exasperator to Seasoned in the Sun, but only 500 steps more to Jingus the Cat. If you hauled your gear far enough to climb SITS, you might as well go a little further and add another pitch of classic 5.10 climbing to your day!
(Also, as you can see from the second photo, some lowlife spray-painted the wall. I've left a wire brush up there with my rope as I plan to scrape that sh*t off, but if you are up there and want to do some community service, the brush is hanging from the tree.)
Thanks very much for this service to the climbing community. Jingus the Cat is a great one and is highly recommended for any 5.10 (and up) lead climber! Get on this classic, people and stop it from mossing over.

I'm guessing this is in the interest of utilizing a ledge to stand on and avoid a hanging belay? I can't really picture the second pitch at the moment.
Thanks for moving the rope - I really have to head up and take that down, the weather's just been too nice for chores. Maybe this weekend.
