Done back in early 90's. Crux on every pitch. First pitch climbs beautiful double cracks out of a right facing corner to white rock and 3 bolt hanging station. 5.9
Pitch 2 ascends straight up past a bolt to a crack then an exposed thin traverse left back into the main dihedral. 5.9
Alternate pitch 2(A Mother's Lament) climbs slightly down from the station and ascends a splitter 9 crack in varnish till it ends. Move left into the main dihedral and climb past 3 or 4 bolts to the bolted anchor. solid 10b Good pitch!
Pitch 3 continues up the corner as it gets smaller and smaller. 10a/b

Location Suggest change

Move right of the Flight Path route about 150 ft to a smaller corner with 3 trees in it. Start on a ledge about 20 ft off the deck.

Protection Suggest change

Camming Gear from 0 alien to 4 Friend, doubles on 1 and 2 Camalot, 2.5 and 3 friends. Stopper set.
Rappel the route with 2 ropes - maybe a single 70m.
Leader should bring a cleaning tools as the crack on pitch 1 can fill with oak leaves,
