P1: The start is about 40 feet right of the Right Side route. Climb up easy slab with lots of small ledges to a big dihedral system. Pass a small ledge and move left into the start of the dihedral. Belay at a stance near the end of your rope. 5.4 190'
P2: Climb the dihedral. Fun steep climbing past occasional loose flakes - be careful what you pull on. Climb past a sloping ledge on the left to a fantastic ledge on the right a few feet higher. 5.4 185'
P3: Climb the dihedral until it peters out, and then move left into another dihedral. Jam up a steep fun crack to a good ledge. 5.4 180'
P4: Climb the dihedral (a pattern emerges). Move left across the slab to yet another dihedral and then wander up to a huge ledge with lots of loose rocks. One could also continue up the dihedral until it forms a small roof, and pull over that. This was wet when I was on it. 5.5 110'
P5: Could be run together with the last pitch, but not recommended because of the large loose blocks on the big ledge. Climb easily up to a short headwall and the top. The line of least resistance is likely 5.2, but a huge number of variations are possible.
