You'll leave the trees behind and start into a groove system that follows the ridge line. The Nose feature is clearly visible up ahead and presents some interesting choices. Belay just below the right side of the Nose in a good crack system.
One way to pass the Nose is on the right. Climb up a ramp with a 3 inch crack and hop up and left into a V grove series with good pro on either the left wall or in the short dihedral. Stem up and turn the corner to great exposure as the wall drops away to the right. Continue on with 2nd and 3rd class moves on a narrow ridge to a large ledge with great views.
Scramble to the summit ridge roped or unroped, depending on how you feel. Walk off to the left following some cairns. Take care not to start down to far left.
