The second pitch moves straight up into the tight flare with a hand-crack. Beware of loose rock as you get into it. Pull through the brief crux (5.10) and continue up the crack with incredible features. End at another obvious ledge with titanium bolts to the right.
The third pitch moves up through some jumbly rock and into the roof. Traverse left along perfectly spaced horizontals and pull around the edge of the roof to a stance on a small grassy perch. Protection gets thin and the exposure mounts as you move up a slight groove to the anchor of an old sport climb. Pull over the lip onto the wide grassy ledge and build a gear belay.
From the last belay, traverse along the grassy ledge to the right, step over to the rocky pinnacle above Commissary Crack, and make a 34m rappel down the south side of the Grand Auditorium. A 60m should get you down with a little down climbing.
