P2)Continue towards a ledge above a fairly prominate left leaning flake. 170'5.5R..
P3).Straight up from the belay towards a massive left leaning flake . Before one enters a smooth groove directly below the flake move out left and climb the steep wall on small flake holes untill one can move back right above the flake to double anchors. 200' 5.7+R.
