Standing around the start of About a Rope
P1: Go up and slightly right around the huge block. Head straight up to the obvious ledge with the large tree with a sling. **Note: there is a sloped block below the face leading to the ledge... it MOVES! Watch your fingers and toes. Also... the big block on which the slope block sits will move as well. Be gentle and everything looks like it should stay put for quite some time.
P2: Traverse left off the ledge and head up a vertical crack system.
One Pitch: Most people climb it in a single pitch. Just avoid going on the ledge with the large tree and climb left of it aiming slightly left for the top mini-dihedral/crack feature. Make sure to use slings.
Start 50' left of the pyramid in the right-facing corner.
Standard rack is fine. Bolted anchor.

I think you did go off route on the 2nd pitch because the belay from the top is on a nice sitdown ledge.
You probably made it to the new route called trundle flakes 5.10a PG that starts on the right end of king arthurs (Minkey).
