There is a tree at the base of the routes to the right. Start at this tree and traverse left on the slabs to the bolt. Climb the right crack to its end and belay on a big ledge with horizontal placements for an anchor. When your second gets up there, go check out the Window up and left of your belay ledge. Huge bathtubs abound on this rock.
Descend with a one-rope rappel off a two-bolt anchor located 20 feet to climber's right of the route, landing at the tree where you started.
