p1: scramble up 3rd and 4th class rock about 50' to an alcove and set your first belay here (short "pitch").
p2: climb crack systems heading up and slightly right, staying below the big dihedral, toward a weakness in the big roof; pull the roof (5.8 crux) and set a belay above the roof.
p3: go up and right to airy exposed face climbing (5.6) similar to p2 of Packrat Dihedral (small pockets/cracks for pro); continue up and anchor at a tree on top.
For the descent, climb up and go left (northerly) for awhile to reach the standard, well established and cairned descent trail. This is a great trail. Alternatively and much less desirable, you can take the "East Gully" descent as described on page 7 of Gary Clark's El Rito trad area guide.
