Cloudwalker ascends the 5.8ish corner system past two obvious chain anchors (the lower one is close to the corner, the upper is out on the face). An additional anchor (two anchor bolts and a third bolt) sits about 160' up right about where the corner system ends. These are hard to see until you're right under them. The second pitch (unless you broke the bottom section into two pitches) ascends left from the top anchor and up a line of bolts up a steep face (5.10?) to the same tree ledge as the top of the second pitch of Barbarian. The final pitch is up the face behind the tree (well bolted, but the anchors are well below the summit and wiggle too much for my taste).

Other than one bolt and clipping the mid pitch anchor the entire first pitch is trad.

As of 9/25/13 the anchor bolts on the final pitch are very wobbly (not just loose). A 70m will not safely get you back to the ledge from the actual summit. If you read the comments for "pygmy alien", Caleb has a good description for the walk-off.
