This is a good variation start to Oasis, with slightly harder climbing than the traditional first 2 pitches. The first pitch climbs a fun 5.10 slab to a moderate crack through the small roof. It is well worth climbing if you're cragging, or as a warm up pitch.
P-1 Climb the short right facing corner to some gear. Move up the slabby face past 2 bolts and a good rp to the right facing corner/roof. Pull roof and belay on left side of ledge at 2 bolt belay.
P-2 Climb up and left past 3 bolts to a short and easy left facing corner. At the top of corner continue up the right-hand groove passing 3 more bolts to a 2 bolt anchor up and right of the groove. Note: It is easiest to move around the bulge to the left before moving back into the right-hand groove. The anchors are slightly higher than the Oasis anchors.

Great climbing. Nice if you have time for two more pithes.
