For a 5.7, this has an excellent variety of terrian for only 3 pitches.
Accessing the route is easy: Walking up to the Lower Buttress, walk right until you find the first set of bolts. Then walk a little more to the second set of bolts, which is Pillar of Society (.12a). The next crack is the Direct Start of Surrealistic Pillar (.10a), and finally you'll be on a tier with a flat face and a couple of large horns about 15 - 20 feet off the ground. You're here.
Pitch 1: Climb up to the horns, and continue up and left to a well protected crack system to a wide (4") left facing crack.
Pitch 2: Follow this crack up for about 4 dykes, where you need to cross to a large horn. Follow this around the arete, where you can belay from a ledge.
Pitch 3: Simple. Go up the face with large jugs and belay from something suitable up top.
