Description 

P1: Climb a pitch of moderate slab with spacey pro to a crazy needle of granite standing on end. Two-bolt anchor is just to the right.
P2: Follow the slab to the right along the base of the steep headwall to an obvious crack system that will take you to the top.
UPDATE: As of 7-9-14 step right to a two-bolt anchor just below the P3 crack.
P3: Head up the crack system. About 20 feet off the slab it splits into two nice hand cracks. Follow it to a mouth-like ledge overlooking the incredible scenery. Belay here on two bolts if you'd like, or climb the next sixty feet or so to the topout.
P3.5: Climb out the left side of the mouth (Or straight out the top if you're a beast) and find a two-bolt anchor directly above the route.
Descent: Walkoff or rappel. The route can be rappelled with one 60m rope.


Location 

Head to the high dive and find a slab at the left edge of the huge roof. Start there. Either walk off or rappel the route, which can be done with one 60m rope.


Protection 

Pro to three inches.
Two-bolt anchors atop each pitch.

Great third pitch! pitch one has potential. Thanks to John for adding the anchor below the third pitch. Skip the last mini "pitch"

Just an update, this route now has two-bolt anchors at each belay, so there's no need to build and climb through an anchor on the third pitch anymore.
