Three variations done by first ascent party: climb the crack and stem to the tree/ climb the crack only/ or climb the tree only- past the roof then up face to "chalky dihedral" past the big roof. Then pull the small roof on the Left through a finger and hand crack. then up short corner to rap station on the left. 2nd pitch: directly above pinnacle-follow various moderate cracks to the rim; then rap from another route eg. Angle Wing.
