PITCH ONE: Climb straight up past three shiny bolts to a ledge that leads to a lieback crack Plug some cams and send to the next ledge with a chain anchor.
PITCH TWO: Climb up and right via a crack. Clip a pin and bolts through a reachy bulge (5.10). Above this bulge, follow the ridge past more cracks, pins, and bolts to a big ledge. Clip the anchor at the back of the ledge. Note: there is an option at the start of this pitch to climb the cracks directly above the anchor and arch right above the bulge then follow the ridge to the top of the pitch (5.6)
PITCH THREE. Climb the beautiful sheer face past cracks, bolts, and pins to a great ledge an another chain anchor.
PITCH FOUR: Walk west via the ledge and move the belay to an exposed anchor at the end of the "gang plank." Climb directly above this anchor past cracks, bolts, and edges to the top of the sheer wall and a chain anchor.
