Fun and varied climbing. The lower pitch offers short sections of varied climbing including small roofs, finger and hand cracks and good gear. The second pitch has a great arete with face climbing that will get your attention. Good rock.

The second pitch arete of this climb can be easily seem from the top of Estrellita.

Hill (3rd edition, 1993) p 160 describes an old climb (Northwest Corner). This new climb likely shares the "awkward alove" section. But the old climb starts below and right of Three Little Birds crosses TLB and finishes left in dirty climbing.
