P1 - Up the face to the overhang. Through the overhang at the notch (crux) then angle up left on slab toward a large pine tree (rap station) 40 ft.
P2 - A few feet right of tree, up the right facing corner to the overhang. Left around the arrete and up to a second overhang where you step a bit right then up the steep face. Continue straight up he slab to a licheny steep juggy face which you continue straight up to a ledge with pine trees. Up 5 more feet and 10 feet to the right and you are at the pine tree rap station 140 ft. (The second pitch is exposed for 5.4 and really fun).
A single 2 rope 60 meter rappel gets you to the ground

p1 is harder (5.5/5.6), awkward, short, run-out, hard to protect, and all around worthless except as access to p2. It should be lead with confidence due to ground-fall potential.
p2 is sustained and enjoyable 5.4 climbing with good pro.
Thanks, JSW, for putting up this description.
