P1 (M4): Go up the crack past the two trees. After the second tree, traverse right to a ledge (crux). If it's snowy and the holds are hidden, this can be desperate. Once on the ledge, continue right to belay in a tree clump well right of the next pitch.
P2 (WI4+): Traverse back left on the ledges, then straight up to the spike. Get in the hidden cave behind the spike for a welcome rest. Ride the spike to its top, then go up and left on a slab to the trees.
Descent: Double rope rappel back to your packs, then another rappel down the gully.
If conditions permit, the direct is a real prize.
