For 5.7, get to the steep crack that starts after some face climbing slightly right of center, not the continuous crack leading into a slight overhang on the left (pitch 3).  Some fun hand jams and exposure.

Roxi just after the crux on the 3rd pitch.  Set up a belay in a notch, to keep easy communication.  It's a jaunt to the top from here.

Comments: I can see these routes being distinguished based on the initial moves, but I (and my climbing partners) have only managed to do the arete moves on the left-hand side. Perhaps the routes merge halfway up?

Comments: At what I believe is the top of the original route I decided to continue to the top of the formation to belay, so I could do the walkoff to the right. The remaining climbing (about 12 ft) looked maybe 5.7 or less, but as I grabbed a nice hold on top of a large plate in the least exposed middle section, it moved and threatened to fall right down on top of me.
