I don't think you have to go all the way over to the arete and back on the 3rd; there's a direct line up a thin crack that leads to the dihedral much closer to the belay.

I thought that doing it direct felt like 5.11-, and protection was poor.

the red line on pitch three is wrong going into the left facing corner. take a thin crack(not visible until your basically in it)almost directly below the corner

Thanks for the feedback... I thought the way we did it was 10+ and slightly runout. I remember seeing that thin crack, but I wasn't sure if that was the correct path.

Has anyone climbed the thin crack going straight up on P2? It looked like in would be in the 5.11 range.

High Res of the first 3 pitches...

The 3rd pitch had a few gripping 5.10 moves as you link thin cracks moving right from the arete back to the large LF dihedral. I thought this pitch was harder than the "crux" pitch.
