Pitch 1 (5.11c): Hard start moves up and left to crux to gain belay ledge. Use belay bolt.
Pitch 2 (5.11b): Another hard start on the block above belay anchors. A couple of mantles will get you to the sharp crimp crux of the pitch to gain a good (although worst of the route) belay ledge.
Pitch 3 (5.11b): Climbs up and right to the steep bolted section of wall. More good sharp crimps will get you to a large belay ledge known as the command center.
Pitch 4 (5.10b): Climbs the route above the huge rap bolt/hanger. Nice varied climbing and a nice rest after the previous 3 pitches.
Pitch 5 (5.12a): Crux pitch. Climb starts straight up above belay anchors. Bolt spacing is a bit further apart than the previous harder pitches until you reach the steep crux section.
Directly infront of you from approach trail. Scramble up dirty loose rocks to first belay ledge.
Bolts. Rap Anchors.

This is a great route! The last 2 pitches are as good as it gets.
