Pitch 2: Climb up to and then along the right angling ramp that is obvious from a distance. 5.8, 100'
Pitch 3: From the belay climb straight up the slab. Crux is early on. 5.8, 100'
Pitch 4: Climb straight up from the belay or alternately (what I did to bypass a slower party) traverse left onto easier slab. This route is winding and requires a lot more rope, but is significantly easier than the direct version.
This route was so much fun. The exposure is great and the rock is phenomenal.
