P1. Start as for Global Warming , up the flake, past two bolts and through the notch. Once established in the left corner above the notch, follow a short rail out left, sling your #4 and stick it in the slot above, step down and make the reach out left to the good horizontal. Clip the bolt above for your second and continue traversing left on the horizontal, stepping above a couple trees to a bolted belay. 5.9+
P2. Continue left to the right facing corner of Fireplace Crack, up through the notch and continue angling left on the big crack/flake that turns into a ledge to another bolted anchor. 5.7?
P3. From the anchor continue walking left, clipping a couple bolts and head up the face on edges (crux, & another bolt). At the next horizontal move left towards the corner than up towards a small spruce tree above (remember to use slings to avoid rope drag). At the level of the tree break left again, embrace the crumbles, and head out the airy horizontal above the high roof, finishing at another bolted anchor. The last bit is a little grainy still but you are on good handholds that turn to buckets and you can soon put your whole arm in to get a shake if needed. Keep your feet pasted high and they will stick better.
Because the route angles and the ground moves up below, you can rap from any of the anchors with a single 60m rope. Just make sure both ends are down! The rap from the 3rd pitch leaves little rope to spare.
