(The rock has cleaned up since then.)P1: 5.6 Start up a large, black, left-facing corner and belay at a sloping stance on a ledge (100').P2: 5.10+ R. Climb up past a bush, and then traverse right to gain a hanging finger crack. Crank up the crack to a ledge then do thin, crux face moves up a vertical headwall.
