P1. Probably hardest 10c I've ever climbed. Follow obvious thin crack system. Crux is where you do unsecured face moves on tinny pro. Belay below the roof, 100ft.
P2. Approach to roof looks little duty. After that root is very clean. Climb #2 camelot size roof, doing one very powerful move around the lip. Than you enter via clean hand/fist crack into very long 200 ft chimney. Go up until you have rope, pro and no rope drug after the roof. 10b, 100ft
P3. Climb easy chimney with some pro . You see in the end of the chimney intimidating roof and could not believe it is 10a after climbing first two severely sandbagged pitches. But surprisingly this thing is easier than it looks. You climb under roof as high as your can squeezed your body place #4 , dounclimb and go outside of the chimney basically doing crux of the pitch on top rope. One of the coolest pitches. 10a ,180ft
