Doug Steigerwald is past the crux and cruising on ...
The first 80 feet is beautifully subtle friction climbing on a polished slab (5.11+). After 4 bolts, clip the lower anchor of "Red Mushrooms" and follow that route to the top. Six bolts lead to the original P1 belay of "Red Mushrooms."
A right-hand variation to the first pitch of "Red Mushrooms."
6 bolts to bolted anchor. All of the bolts are buttonheads.

There is a clear crux encounter about one body length below the first bolt. There are just 2 really hard moves. If leading, there is a shallow placement for a TCU just below this (you'll pull the crux with gear about 2 feet below your toes). Above this, the route is brilliant, sustained 5.10- slab climbing.
