P1) From the gully traverse out right towards the bottom of the brown hole filled wall ,then follow the easy groove on its left to reach the ledge below the impressive big slab.Natural belay.160'5.4R.
P2) Six bolts protect this pitch that first trends up to the right then at about 140'up left to reach the start of a long diagonal groove/ledge.Double anchors.190'5.9-R.
P3) Directly above the belay is one bolt that protects a 5.8 move left to reach an 5.4 slab that is followed straight up (no pro on slab) to a short crack and double anchors just below a massive ledge system.180'5.8.....
