From the belay, follow the dike that heads up and to the left. The crux is just off of the belay where the the dike becomes thin. The guidebooks recommend clipping the bolt on Dixie Crystals to protect the second through the crux. I went ahead and did so but it is a little out of the way. There are two bolts along the dike before the belay. The first is along easy terrain and the second is just past a fun, tougher section. The belay is on a decent sized ledge just above the dike and below a sickle shaped overlap/flake.
The third pitch follows the dike a short distance then heads straight up to the sickle shaped flake. This is the only spot on the entire pitch that can be protected. Continue up to a ledge with several trees at the base of a large overhang. Use a tree for the belay. The fourth pitch continues to the summit and is unprotected. It is too easy to matter.
