Classic Black Wall outing.
P1 (5.8): Long pitch, head for the twin cracks and continue up a slightly lower-angle section to a bolted belay.
P2 (5.9): Climb the steep, thin crack above the belay, then move left through a slanting corner. Getting around the end of the corner, over the bulge, and onto the face is the route crux. From here, continue up and left on a ramp system to the large Lizard Ledge.
P3 (5.6): Follow the obvious crack system that leads off the right side of Lizard Ledge. There are a few other options for the last pitch, this is the most common finish.
