P1. Establish an initial anchor after walking carefully across gravelly, gently down-sloping but still class 2 ledges. Climb up far climber's right most of a rope length to some trees, generally staying right. (This is the price of admission pitch.)
P2. Continue up to the ridge crest and perform a roped hike/scramble to a sandy spot near the "shark fin". There is a good spot for a gear anchor (#2+#3) behind a flake.
P3. Climb up and over the shark fin and then up the summit block. You can belay from the bolts at the summit. (This is the money pitch.)
From the pair of bolts with some tat nearest the south side of the summit, either a single-rope rap to an intermediate anchor on the face or a double-rope rap all the way back to the notch will get you back down.
