P2) Steep smears lead off the belay to a bolt, after which comes the crux- a balance move to a right facing flake. Continue up the flake past a fixed pin and some gear placements to a bolted anchor/rap.
Although possible to do in a single pitch if mindful of rope drag, this is best done in two. A hanging belay midway allows one to enjoy the desert from a unique perspective and contemplate the wild-looking crux pitch above. A single rope rap (100') from the top with a 60 meter rope will get you back to terra firma.
