From my memory

P1: Climb past the overhang, move right to a small overlap. Trend left to a crack follow the crack and then a slab to a small pine tree in a large left-facing, left-leaning corner to a large cedar tree.
P2 Climb the tree, then climb the loose, blocky right-facing corner (suspect rock in places) up and right to the top.


Start: After the dirty slabs on the left end of the cliff, at the large depression formed by the downed tree next to the cliff, at a low overhang.

Walk skier's right on the cliff to the low-angle slab and descend this on the skier's right most side or improvise a rappel route.
