P1: 5.11c Starting in a often dirty right facing dihedral climb the finger crack through a notch and up to a jug. Cut left into an eyebrow and mantle up onto the ledge. Move left to a bomber eyebrow. Climb interesting slab placing small gear before clipping a bolt and entering the crux. Continue climbing through two bulges split by a crack of varying size (fingers - thin hands) and belay at a natural gear anchor.
P2: Climb P2 of Safari jive
Start on a thorn covered ledge just left of Nuclear Erection, below a shallow right facing dihedral.
Descent: Rappel off P2 Anchors (2 60's)
Regular NC rack

If anybody has the FA info it would be great to have. This variation of P1 is much more interesting and adds a number of harder moves

The original direct was done by Kris Kline. The part with the bolt is actually on the double direct and was put in by Bruce Burgess. See description for Safari Double Direct.

Kris Kline's original version required double ropes and climbed as described to just below the bolt. From there you traverse hard right for about 10' the fire up some steep edges in a short leaning corner to gain the horizontal to move back left to gain the splitter crack through the bulge.
