3 pitches. WI3+, WI4 (sustained: ramp then vertical ~100 ft.), WI3+. There on 2 bolts on the left side of P2 base. There are bolts on the right side of P3 base. There is a tree at the top of P3. Each pitch is a full rope length. If you feel burly, you can do the "Moonrise" WI5 curtain instead of the "High on Boulder" crux pitch.
Go to the end of the Road. Look left. Locate "Mean Green". Now look right of "Mean Green" and "High on Boulder" will be the next flow to the right. You will see the wide crux pitch. The approach takes ~1 hour. Head straight for the ice, then get into the drainage/gully as soon as you can. Continue up the gully to the base. Go do it.
Bring enough screws for 100 ft. of continuous ice.

I remember the bolts above P1 being under a sheet of ice when we found them. It took us awhile to dig them out, and if I recall, they were in good shape. Perhaps you did not find them because they were buried under the ice? Sorry. I should have warned you about that. So, if anyone else has trouble finding bolts, take your adze and hack away some of that stuff near the base and maybe you'll find them with any luck. Cheers!
