Pitch 2: Locate the bolt on the steep rock above and to the right of the belay. Climb past the bolt on steep rock using cool face holds. Trend left into the obvious crack system. Follow this to a very nice ledge. 5.10, 140 feet.
Pitch 3: Continue up the obvious line above the belay. End at another very nice ledge, below a left-trending corner with a nice crack. 5.8, 60 feet.
Pitch 4: Climb the aforementioned corner above the belay. When the crack pinchs to nothing do some corner switching face climbing to the left. Follow the next crack system up. It is steep and starts out flared. Do not traverse into the huge chimney out left. Follow this crack system up through some interesting stemming. End at another very nice ledge, with a left curving (and dead end) crack directly above. You'll need at least 1 #3 Camalot for the belay, maybe save a #2 as well. 5.10, 130 feet.
Pitch 5: Step right off the ledge on a foot rail and gain the corner/crack system. Layback or jam up the corner to a ledge system. Head right following the path of least resistance towards the ridge line. 5.9, 100 feet.
You'll come across a slab of polished rock in between the first and second Buttresses. Dog Fight starts on the right side of the slab.
