P1 (5.8 G): Climb the obvious chimney (easy, no gear) until you reach the roof and horizontal crack on the right side. Protect with your 3.5-4" cam and hand traverse out the horizontal to pull "the move" to get your feet underneath you and climb briefly to the perch atop the stacked boulders under the roof (belay here).
P2 (5.8 G): Gain the highest block that allows one to by pass the roof. Face climb up and left passing horizontals (protection) to a semi-detached block with a bolt at its left. Climb up to a wide horizontal and a left-leaning sloping ledge. Move left on the ledge to a bolt and climb technical face to the last bolt. Easier climbing past a moss filled horizontal (no gear) leads to a final horizontal with a dirty but welcomed pod of cleared vegetation for protection. One last section of face climbing leads to the fixed anchor atop the cliff.
Descent: Rappel back to the stacked blocks belay ledge. You'll have to swing yourself about to reach a fixed anchor around on one of the blocks. One more rappel will lead to either the traverse ledge or the ground.
