hiked/scrambled about 100' up and to the left of physical graffiti to reach the start of the climb.
The first pitch involved easy chimney moves for less than 100' before I reached a slung chockstone that sat 20' below a roof and right facing corner. I skipped that belay and setup an anchor on a ledge 10' higher though, if I climb this again, I'd probably use the chock.
The 2nd pitch must be the 5.8 bit and involved pulling around a right facing corner into an offwidth crack on some rather crumbly rock. Although awkward, the moves were quite interesting. I found it difficult to place good gear.
I ended the 2nd pitch after about 100' as I reached easier terrain. A easy final pitch (~100') lead to a plateau with a cairn and a straight forward descent to the left.
