Start from an alcove and climb up to the ledge below the roof; the roof has an obvious crack, and there is a tree a few feet higher. Move right of the tree and over the roof (crux). Climb past another roof at a crack, then go right approximately 5 feet and find a stance on the slab above. Trend up and left to a less than reassuring belay/rap tree; there are other - recommended - options for belaying. Rap off or scramble to the top.
Go to the end of the cliff and look for the left-leaning crack of Up in Arms; this is on a large, left-facing corner. Shadow Nose is left and up the hill about 30 feet.
Standard 'Gunks rack.
