Pitch 1 (5.7, 190 ft) Start on the slabby apron and go into the corner. Traverse right only minimally and only at the start. (Going on the bulges to the right is possible but much less protectable and occasionally a bit harder.)
Pitch 2 (5.6, 180 ft) First half of the pitch is on the bulges (the gully turns dirtier here) and gets really east toward the end. Go back to the corner again after the easy part, but stay on the face, first just right of the corner, but soon in a short left-facing corner, then continuing up in the same direction past a mini-tree to a comfortable belay ledge.
Pitch 3 (5.8, 100 ft) Go back in the corner again, past a step and a nasty looking yucca plant (no problem). The crux is the steep section. Protection is by small pieces, but it is available. Once above that, there is more face climbing on the right to the top.
Rappel down on the south side by the standard Not in Kansas rap line.
