DescriptionPitch 1: Climb eyebrows for about 75 feet to a nice ledge (you will be almost even with the Pitch 1 anchors on Sundial which will be to your right); gear anchor.
Pitch 2: (crux) Climb past the rap bolts (out right) and up over the dike. You will want to search for another gear belay once you are up and right of the anchors on the start of pitch 3 of The Nose.
Pitch 3: Climb up to the right edge of the parking lot and either use the rap anchors or build a belay out right.
Pitch 4: Work your way up and slightly left to the anchors at the top of The Nose. Three double rope rappels get you to the ground.
