Didn't remember the beta so didn't follow the line for P2 and 3. Plus the dihedral on P2 was wet and seeping. Anchored P1 on the big ledge at about 100'. Ran up and left to the far left side of the roof, went around left and then back right above the roof and scrambled to the lower summit, about 200' for this pitch. For P3 (original P4) we went up the arete on the left side of the wall.
Fun route with the occasional loose block but not too loose, no harder that 5.7 (probably only 5.6) the way we climbed it.
This route had a real adventure feel to it; the rock is covered in lichen (but there are solid footholds all the way up) with no signs of climbing making it feel like you're doing an FA.
