P1: Start up steep huecos to the starting crack on T2 off of the upper ramp. When T2 breaks left, continue up the steep, left-facing, black groove. The crux bulge is 2/3rds of the way up the 1st pitch. Solid gear can be found and it is at your feet as you pull the funky crux moves. A final awkward bulge leads to a belay ledge on the right. Bring a long sling for the belay horn.
P2a: The original 2nd pitch heads straight up from the belay on steep rock. This pitch finishes on runout 5.5 slabs to the T2 belay (5.8R).
P2b: An alternate P2 cuts left on a crack system with good exposure and gear to the T2 crack system (5.8+).
