Pondo Pete is the nice one pitch left facing corner.
Pyramid Scheme 5.11a follows dangerous old rusting bolts on the face just to the right of Pondo for 3 short pitches to the summit. First pitch belay is just right of the little tree. Last pitch follows the obvious left facing corner on the summit block.
Le Cigare Volant 5.12a (The Burning Cigarette) is the bolt line just right of that for 4 short pitches. First pitch follows the obvious white dike, hence the name, ending at the first pitch belay of Pyramid Scheme. Route ends on the obvious sharply curving crack (11c) right side of summit.
