P2) A short pitch with a steep, exposed hand crack takes you to a huge ledge with belay bolts (1/2" SS).
P3) Chimney up the featured wide crack which narrows and then turns to a crack up a slab which leads to a belay stance at the base of a vertical section; gear belay.
P4) Easier climbing up steep but featured cracks takes you to the top as you aim for a notch; gear belay.
It's very possible and perhaps even recommended to combine pitches when possible on this route.
* Descend by rappelling off the shorter backside via two sturdy bolts (3/8", 1/2") which are located just left as you pass through the notch; a single rope will suffice to descend.
This is a splendid adventure for the grade and merits four stars out of five.
