DescriptionP1. Take the very large blackened dihedral in the middle of the wall at the lowest point of rock. Climb up for a long lead and belay to the right on a bench (5.7).
P2. Take easy corners and cracks for a long pitch straight up and belay on a large ledge (5.6).
P3. Take the left corner system that angles left to a ledge with trees (5.7). (I got off route; easy to do with many dihedrals that all go in the same general direction, and traversed right out of the corner to a perfect hand crack that goes up to a ledge with a dead tree....part of the route Climbing with the Camel Man, 5.8).
P4. Go up to the right-angling crack that passes thru some small overlaps/roofs to a belay on a ledge with a large tree (5.7).
P5. More of the same slabby and overlap stuff to the summit (5.6).
Descend by hiking down gullies to the east and around and down.
