Climb ramps with shallow corner for pro and belay at corner's top. Head left through steep section little pro (t.c.u. will work best here) past this bulge (5-6) and climb to summit (5-1). Make believe there is a belay in some pockets and short bushes. There's a 4 star variation to our climb. Don't belay at corner top. Keep going slightly right to good belay ledge after passing one bolt on (5-6) friction face. from here continue straight up (5-1) to top make the same pretend it'll work belay.
From the base of Dickey Ledge, walk to the high point on the left or west side, above the main tongue of Dickey the slab. Start here. You can do some (5-6) no protection friction up to this place. Our first ascent did and it is clean but unprotected for 60ft.
Trad rack, nothing big. One 27 year old 1/4 bolt (that needs replacement) protects the face crux and we didn't place it.
