P1: Start in a right facing dihedral and climb a clean hand and finger crack until you reach a blocky roof. Traverse right, climb to a ledge and belay.
P2, P3: Climb any number of class 5 variations to the summit.
On our ascent we went far right and climbed a nice, 5.9 chimney/offwidth. Above the offwidth, we ran into 5.10+ R face climbing, where we bailed out to the top of pitch 2 and finished up a nice, 5.7+, crack system to the left.
A rack of singles to #4 BD, a set of stoppers and hexes will do it. Walk off either east or west.
