P1- Climb the North Central Variation of the Hart Route for approximately 100 ft. until a ledge system on the right leads to a 2 bolt belay, or climb the first pitch of Chimera. P2- Traverse right and up past 5 bolts for about 100 ft. to a 2 bolt belay (top of Aerial Combat). P3- Traverse right and down about 20 ft. and clip a bolt before ascending a black water streak to class 2 terrain. Walk south until it's possible to clip another bolt (for a directional) and then down climb right into the head of the Beehive gully and belay from a Palo Verde tree. Descend by following a climber's trail with cairns to Pedrick's Chimney for a single 100 ft. rappel.
