Pitch 2: 5.8 Head left from the belay on a thin and exposed flake (though very secure). Pull some laybacks up to get you over a block, then follow a left-facing layback corner and belay from the big sandy ledge.
Pitch 3: 5.9 Money pitch. Head up on the right side of the sandy ledge to a right-facing finger crack corner. Mantle left and then head up the wild twin handcrack. Belay from another large ledge.
Pitch 4: 5.8 Head up but stay left of the prow through a short bit of a low-angle offwidth corner (easy). At this part there seems to be 3 options. Take the corner on the left side (5.8), the clean-looking middle crack (5.9?), or the corner on the right (5.8?). Whichever way you go will involve some crazy moves with the "diving board" rock up top. Build an anchor on the ledge and extend yourself back to the lip and belay.
Descent: walk east to the saddle of Amphitheater and down the trail to the south and back around to upper cathedral lake.
