P1: Climb up the right slanting ramp, mantle onto the ledge above. Step left and clip a bolt, and then quest up into the fun slab above following the line of bolts. Two bolt anchor (5.8).
P2: Clip the bolt right above the anchor, then pull a fun (but tricky) move past it. Fun climbing up flakes (protects with mostly finger sized cams in the flakes, some of which sounded a bit hollow). Another tricky move leads to another bolt. After clipping that, pull a tough mantel onto the ledge above. Tree anchor (5.9+).
P3: Head left up the gully with a couple trees growing out of it. Stand on the ledge and clip a bolt, and then make your way past a thin face/slab section until you can grab jugs. Continue up the face (bolted, with some gear placements in between the longer runouts). Make another tough move past the last bolt, and then stand up into the right facing corner above. Instead of climbing this corner, step left and climb the beautiful finger-thin hands crack. Unfortunately, this crack does not last as long as you would like and the angle quickly eases off. Two bolt anchor (5.9, but I thought it was just as tough as the 9+ pitch).
P4: This was rather wet looking so we rapped, but: 5.8 according to Tough Schist. Looked like a mostly bolted pitch, but it did look a bit run out to the first bolt - although maybe some gear placements were possible in a small left corner before the first bolt?? Go figure it out! A short pitch, we saw a two bolt anchor at the end (5.8).
You can rap the route with a 70.
