P1: Ascend the increasingly difficult crack until it gives way to face climbing up the slash-marked face (protected but small wires). Ultimately arrive at a stance under a roof with a good natural belay off of a thread and a horn. 5.11-.
P2: Hand traverse straight left from the belay for 40 feet under the roof. The difficulty increases as the wall below becomes steeper and handholds are more spaced. A bolted anchor at the end of the traverse allows for a quick rappel with one rope. 5.10+.
With adequate runnering of gear these two pitches can be linked into one monster pitch (recommended!).
