Just to the left of Back to the Future, go up the open book, then up the face on the right to a small birch tree. step right and go up to the obvious left facing corner. Follow that up to a roof on the right. Move right head for the ledge with the pine tree that used to be the rap station. It is still there but is now perpendicular to the cliff.
It looks kind of bushy from the ground so is easily passed over, but turns out to be a very nice pitch for the grade.
just left of Back to the Future/ Princess Leia (I seem to have inserted it to the right of back to the future on this site - it is just past Back to the Future if you are walking along the base of the Nears from the road.)
standard gunks rack plus one fixed piton.
Rap off the anchors on the tree about 25 feet to the right. above "Fat and Weak"/ Grey Gully.

I thought this was a fun climb and worth doing to the top. P2 has an alpiney feel, some broken/suspect rock that can be easily avoided. P3 is great for a new leader, as you can bail right and stay in the 5.2 range the whole way. Pulling the roof is 5.5. Overall, it's a nice moderate climb that doesn't seem to get a lot of traffic. Gear is great all the way up.
