First two pitches are among the best I've ever done, and the third pitch is pretty good too!
Easy 4th class 30ft up slabs to base of short dihedral. Clip a bolt and pendulum left (or stretch left for free-11b height dependent variation) then up hand and finger crack to anchor (90ft including slabs) P2: this pitch has everything! technical finger crux off the belay then thru a pod to a difficult obtuse chimney to a roof with good jams! (80ft) P3; up corner/chimney past a few bulges and big jams then stem over out over space and follow OW with face edges to an inspiring vista from an alcove.(95ft)
center fo the John Doe Wall
you can get away with singles to #5 camalot including a #4.5 but you may want a few doubles (#2,#3,#4); also useful at start of P2 one gold LoweBallNut (regular small nuts will work though)
Good luck making this move.
If this lead is at your limit, get ready for battl...
