P-1. Very fun pitch if dry. Climb the left-hand groovy crack thing to a ledge and belay from bolts. 5.9. (Alt if wet, climb the 4th class slab on right to same ledge)
P-2. 5.11 The money pitch... Climb the water streak and groove past 10 bolts (2 have been added) and gear, varying from small C3's to a possible #4 camelot. Belay at 2 bolt anchor at 185'.
P-3. 5.9 Climb the moderate groove past 2 bolts and gear to bolt anchor at 175'. There is a cool #4 camelot placement in the groove up high on this pitch.
P-4. Pretty uneventful, but if you've just gotta top out the groove... then climb an easy 5th class pitch to the same rap anchor as for Nannas.... and Laurels Girdle. It is slightly out left of the groove above the mossy ledges.
Rap route. If the first pitch is wet, it might be best to rap the apron on Manatee left to avoid getting ropes wet.
