DescriptionP1, fourth class up the main dihedral until you feel the need to rope up. We set up a belay just above a thorn bush (didn't bring the loppers...sorry) in a thin crack (blue-yellow TCU).
P2, avoid the heavily vegetated corner by climbing the fist crack on the right face. Traverse back to the corner through a broken section. Face climb to a flake with a small bulge that may be easier (and less scary) now that the choss has been cleaned. Another fist crack variation exists on the right face here. A stemming crux awaits near the top of the route. There are some loose rocks on the belay ledge, so be careful not to kick them loose onto your belayer (we dislodged the loosest stuff). An enjoyable outing.
