Description

We found the guidebook picture to be taken at an extremely odd angle that was less then helpful. Here are my thoughts...

P1: 5.10B. Start up a corner with fun stemming leading to an intimidating looking roof/undercling out right and up. After the roof climb another ~20ft until you see low angle terrain to your right to a ledge. the anchor is out of sight until on the ledge and further right then the guidebook suggests. this is unprotected but easy ground. Quality pitch. Gear to #3BD C4

If intending to the the 10d alternate p2 ( gudebook describes as guano filled) that takes the natural line to the top you will want to just make a belay below the great looking corner with a stuck red TCU. This is a bit further up the corner system from where you would traverse right.

P2: 5.10c: the book gives this pitch several stars. Thin, tricky pro and route finding skills are involved.  
From the P1 anchors this looked excellent, but, we did not do this pitch as the sun had caught up to us on a particularly hot summer day and we were ready for some shade. Perhaps someone in the comments can help out.

Location

Hike to the center of the feature, into a shady nook with two obvious corners, slow pitch is the one on the left. The right hand one has a bolt at the buldge. Once you think you've found it, look around the corner to the left for a sport route (12a) to make sure.

Protection

Gear to 3" extras in the small cams/stoppers may be needed for p2
