Get up onto the ledge by any one of numerous ways. Go up the dihedral to a belay below an overhang, 5.5. The second pitch goes through the overhang to the left and finishes up the dihedral above. It is possible to go around the right side of the overhang and up to A Pig with Earrings 5.6 R or around the overhang and back left into the dihedral and finish, 5.5. Traverse off left or finish on Magic Chrome Plated . . .
If one were so inclined, a nice 4 pitch 5.5 climb may be had by using the right side overhang option mentioned above then the next two pitches of Magic Chrome . . . and then traverse off to the left at the upper headwall and into the deep cleft behind the Pear. Go right, east through the cleft and down the east side descent.
