Pitch 1 (5.8, 100')
From the top of the pedestal, build a little anchor using very small gear. The step off left is exposed and not a gimme. Move up the weakness/cracks past a small tree towards a good sized ledge with a good sized tree on it. Belay here. Micro cams/small nuts are really good to have on this pitch, otherwise you will have a small runout, albeit easy climbing.
Pitch 2 (5.8, 60')
From the ledge, ascend the ramp to the left and into the next crack system. Pull through the small roof, and finish in a cool lieback near the top. Belay either at the huge tree, or (recommended) in the cracks on the prow.
This is a very exposed, but easy and protectable "walk off". We stayed roped up. From the top of the 2nd pitch, step right across an exposed gap, and then follow the prow around to an awkward, but easy down climb on a flake with a 4" crack in it. Once you gain the easy, safe ground, it is easy walking back down and around the base.
