Apparently Bob Kerry's Description was insufficient. It has been five years this things has been posted and nobody seemed to mention that to me. My bad, here is a pitch by pitch description:
Rack: Quickdraws only.
Pitch 1 (5.11-, 100): Clip two bolts, then pull a difficult (10+) roof to establish yourself on the slab. Continue up the slab on increasingly difficult moves to an anchor on a ledge.
Pitch 2 (5.11-, 60): Traverse left, clipping two bolts. Pull around the arête (11-), then continue up and left to the anchor.
Pitch 3 (5.10, 110): Climb up and left where you will encounter a long reach move near the third bolt (10c). The route arcs back to the right for airy, exposed climbing to the anchor.
Pitch 4 (5.10-, 140): Work through 5.10- climbing past three bolts, after which the climbing eases off on more runout terrain. Belay at a ledge below and to the left of a large pine tree.
Pitch 5 (5.10, 130): Climb up and slightly left to a crux near the 5th bolt (10c). The climbing eases off and continues to a two bolt anchor at the right side of a large ledge.
Transfer the belay left: Walk left along the ledge a total of 160. Youll pass by a tree at about 100 and a two bolt anchor 30 feet beyond the tree. Your anchor is the second two bolt anchor 30 past the first one.
Pitch 6 (10+/11-, 100): Climb the chossy looking face (10b) and work up more slab (10+/11-) to a two bolt anchor next to a shrub. Another anchor is directly left on the other side of the shrub, an easy 50 pitch is possible here to escape to the top. Cams from 2-4 are needed for the anchor if you exit this way.
Pitch 7 (5.10+, 50): Climb the shallow trough past three bolts to the top.
