Description 

P1 - (5.8/5.9) - Friction up to the flake system/dihedral, past one newer bolt. Follow the flake system as it jogs right, then leans back left. Belay on easy ground near the first shrub.

P2 - (5.6) - You have a couple of options. Move left up to some smaller/cleaner flakes stacked on the face. Either continue left to another flake system or head up through more shrubs. Belay on the ledge system that leads over from Monday Morning Slab, at two bolts.


Location 

Start in the first right facing dihedral to the right of Monday Morning Slab. This feature does not quite reach the ground, and the crux (possibly a 5.9 move) is frictioning up to the base. The good news is that there is a bolt here - the bad news is that the bolt comes right *after* the crux (you can see where an older bolt used to reside, lower).


Protection 

Gear to 3".
