P1. Identify an A-shaped roof halfway up the cliff, and start below that, near a large tree. Traverse up and right across the face on a ramp to a belay (5.5).
P2. Climb straight up, linking cracks and corners, and belay below a bulge, down and right of the A-shaped roof (5.7, 100 feet).
P3. Climb over the bulge (5.10a) or climb the corner to the roof and turn that at 5.8. Either way, continue in a nice hand crack. Belay or stretch the rope to the top; descend to the west.
Note: the cliff immediately west (the Moot Point Apron sports a beautiful steep slab with a shallow dihedral, said to be 5.10 (2 old bolts). Unfortunately, my partner took a rather large fall after 50 feet of fantastic climbing, so we didn't finish the route. An offwidth piece for a flake would be advisable.
