DescriptionP1 - Start on stack of boulders and climb up 20 feet to first bolt. Climbing up and left of the arete using good features and slinging hueco's for protection before climbing past 2nd bolt and a small playing card size brass plaque. After the memorial plaque traverse right 15' to a ledge with a 2 bolt anchor.
P2 - Looking to the right from the ledge it looks as if the arete feature drops into no-mans-land and improbable path. But yes, this is correct. Move up and right from belay to a crack which can be protected using 3" camalot then drop your hands down and move over to a large flake that is towards the front of the buttress. Just above this flake/pillar is a bolt with well featured and amazing climbing ahead to the summit. The guidebook states something about a thin crack, which I don't recall seeing.
No rap stations so you'll be walking down.
