Pitch 2: (5.6, 130 ft) Continue up the bulge of the buttress staying basically on the ridge line up to a steep head wall. Make your way around to wall on the right, walk cross a wide, right sloping shelf, and continue up the easy slab on the other side to a ledge below (or even above) a clump of yuccas. (Ending Pitch 2 on the large shelf while inviting is not recommended if you intend to climb Pitch 3, as having the ropes go around the yuccas would cause an unreasonable amount of rope drag for the slabby end of that pitch.)
Pitch 3: (5.7, 130 ft) Once up past the yuccas and the few boulders above them take the right-facing corner on your left. (The left facing one on the right goes too, but it's both harder climbing and less protectable one higher up in it.) Step up into the narrowing end of the corner(s) and you should be able to reach up past the vegetation on your right to protect the transition onto the ramp on the right. Go up the ramp for a few feet and then traverse right on the wide ledge into which it turns until above you you rind a short, left-facing corner with a good crack in it. From there go up within the reddish streak. Protection, while sparse, continues to be adequate. Belay at the top of the slab from the boulders there.
From the top of Pitch 3 walk over to the rap bolts on top of a large boulder in an alcove about 50 feet to your left.
