Start in the huge and obvious, left-facing dihedral up and right 15 meters from the North Face proper. Climb the corner past occasional placements, and also use a crack on the left side face. At a fixed pin, go up and left a move (back it up with gear) onto the left face and then up to a horizontal crack and ledge system even with the tree and anchor at the top of the regular North Face P1.
Traversing over, be mindful to protect the second, as a fall for them on a runout would be little different than a lead fall. This is not a good intro climb for inexperienced followers or leaders.
