Start on the "Mourning Maiden" dihedral.
P-1 Climb up MM 10' and traverse out right to a lichen covered face. Climb the face up past an old pin and a bolt that are hard to spot. Continue up semi-runout terrain to an overlap. Pull overlap to a 2 bolt anchor (5.10-). Alternate start is to scramble the 2-pitch gully and step across to the anchor, avoiding pitch 1.
P-2 Climb the obvious steep wall via a seam (rp's usefull here) and crack (possible #3 or 3.5 camelot here) through the bulge to a line of 4 bolts. The crux is moving right at the first bolt to the next stance at bolt 2 (5.12).
