I believe we climbed some variation on the standard route to gain the alcove. Steve went out right on the standard pitch and over some roofs, as I recall. It was a typical Grossman lead, not for the faint of heart but also protected if you're a good pro leader.

By Cracky then follows the finger crack, seam that leads out of the alcove.

As I recall, I enjoyed it but Steve's larger fingers made it pretty challenging.


Back in the large alcove after the first pitch of the standard route on the Pharoah.


Stndrd thin crack, I believe you want some thin stoppers down low.

Once you're past the business of the route, you gain a small ledge. From here you can cut left to some bolt anchors or continue straight up the arete to the top. I would NOT recommend the latter. It looks like fun but it is super chossy. I tried this but down-climbed and backed off when I broke off a large foothold that almost hit my belayer and almost took a pretty nasty fall because of it.
