Pitch 1 - Start by climbing discontinuous cracks up to below a 3 foot roof. Pull the roof using a combination of fingers, hands, and stems. Past the roof, continue up a finger and hand (160 feet). Belay on ledge with bolted anchor. (5.11).
Pitch 2 - Continue up a right-facing corner/dihedral with fingers/hands to a ledge (100 feet). Belay off gear. (5.10).
Pitch 3 - Follow the dihedral up to an arete with a finger and hand crack. Take this to the top by a pine tree (140 feet). Belay from bolted anchor. (5.9).
Descent - From the top anchor, make 3 double rope raps.
The route starts in a small alcove. Look for the 3 foot roof above. There is also a small pocket on the face about 15 feet up the route.
Small to medium nuts. Double set of cams to 3".

Climbed the 1st pitch of this again today and it is awesome. The 1st 25 feet is a bit heads up but there is good pro available. Fantastic route that gives you just what you need when you need it.
