P1. Climb the hand crack to a short horizontal dike. Catch a breath before ascending the awesome finger-tip layback crux. Follow the dihedral around the left side of a roof to an obvious, comfortable belay. The second pitch could probably be linked with a 200-foot rope and a couple extra hand-size cams, but Chuck and I didn't do it that way so we'll describe it as three pitches.
P2. Traverse a short distance left and ascend the obvious, left-facing flake/dihedral for 70 feet to a semi-hanging belay below a point where the dihedral leans more sharply left, becoming a roof. (You may notice that there's another 10a option to the right from here. It looks good.)
P3. Layback and jam around the roof. Continue up and slightly right on buckets to a layback and continue until the angle tapers off.
Descent: Walk west over slightly higher ground until you encounter metamorphic rock and an obvious descent gully winding south.
