This description is only for the FIRST pitch. There is a second pitch, which, judging by its current state of filth, doesn't get done too often.
The first pitch is excellent and tricky, with great protection where needed. It, along with Foreplay, is also a nice way to access the pillar pitch of It Don't Come Easy.
Clip a bolt low to the ground, then move through a difficult boulder problem to easier ground. Meander up, straying left a bit at times, through easier terrain to a right facing corner at the top of the dike rock. Make the crux stand-up move, then follow the superb face and crack to the top and a 2 bolt anchor. 5.11
About 15 feet to the right of the right facing corner 10 feet off the ground (Foreplay), at a lone bolt. There is usually fierce groundcover at the start.
Bolts and most of a full rack including a #3 Camalot size piece that is nice for the very top.
