Pitch 1: Starts at the base of the second arch from the left. Follow the widening crack clipping the occasional bolt and plugging gear under the arch trending left and upward. and eventually pulling over a small bulge to a 2 bolt belay. 5.8 (115 ft.)
Pitch 2: Traverse left from the belay upward following a line of pitons on razor-thin varnish that eventually trends right again to a two bolt belay. This pitch is fairly low angle, making for easier traversing. 5.7 (80 ft.)
Pitch 3: Continue 20-25 ft up the unprotectable slab to the obvious flake at the top of the formation. The flake protects well with everything from a .5-5" cam. There are no bolts at the top of the crack. So expect to set up a gear belay before you top out.
Descent: Once you reach the top of the formation, scramble down the squeeze chimney and move to the north where you will pass a boulder with slings & webbing wrapped around it. Either set up a short rappel down the ramp or continue scrambling north down the low angle ramp to a tree with a two bolt anchor.
From this set of anchors, make two rappels to the ground.
