Excellent crack, face, and slab climbing. For the upper section, it's best to join Morticia, as the rock is cleaner and you can get off with a single 60m rope. The FA was a practice aid climb using aluminum dowels from a shelving bracket; it was later freed using this same hardware (yikes!). More recently this hardware was upgraded, but the original hardware is intact for you to admire.
P1 5.11a: Gain the handcrack and follow it to its top. Make a hard move up and right to dike, then face climb up to a fixed anchor. (Rappel possible from here.) 80'
P2 5.10a: Step left and climb a left-facing flake to its top. Follow bolts straight up forever to a tree island. 195'
If you join Morticia, you can rap 100' to the P1 anchor on Lurch, then to the ground.
This is the obvious left-leaning handcrack that begins 6' up, located at the left end of the lowest point on the slab.
To 2", plus quickdraws.
