P2. Traverse left on thin holds, but good rock, past two bolts. Pull up through a strenuous bulge and into a splitter. Follow the splitter up the left side of a large pillar. Commit to one last exhilarating move and heave your way onto the top of the pillar where a two bolt anchor awaits. This is an awesome pitch, 5.10.
P3. This pitch is the shit! Climb up a wide but easy crack past a large chockstone to a stance. Before you lies a horizontal slot/roof that extends out thirty feet towards the Dolores River. Dive up and into that luxurious cavity while carefully avoiding the gargantuan clumps of bat feces. Number 5s work well to protect this unique piece of climbing. After groveling horizontally along the roof, turn the corner into some proper but moderate offwidth climbing. Chicken-winging and stemming leads up to another anchor at a stance. The climbing on this pitch truly unique and unlike any other route I've done, 5.10.
P4. Step right, and follow the splitter up through a short but awkward bulge. Be wary of some loose blocks as you work your way up easier terrain to a giant ledge. Do not stop at the ledge but carefully climb upwards to a #1-sized crack that takes you to the summit anchors. From the anchors, it’s a 15 foot scramble to the summit and a sweeping view of the Dolores River, 5.9.
Descent: slam a Busch beer, then rap to the top of P3 (100feet), then from the top of P3 to P1 (180 feet), then to the ground. 60m+ ropes work best.
