Scramble up the ledges to the right of Midway, to below the big roof. Traverse left below the roof on good edges, and then upward through blocks and cracks to a good belay stance. The second pitch climbs up and then traverses right into a crack system, and can be run all the way to the summit with a 60 meter rope.
