At the point where the climber is, move right and then up around that blunt arête and onto the varnished face. Don't continue up the nasty V-slot in the main corner. The moves out onto the face are not particularly obvious, but once you commit it's fine. Expect dramatic exposure and crisp edges with reasonable protection on the face (5.6 - 5.7). After about 60 feet, move back left into the easy corner and up to either of two stances below some obvious shrubbery. This was a really cool pitch, although I'd rather have a root canal than do the first 20 feet again (such a massive thrutch).

Pitch 3 starts with a short offwidth slot, then moves right on the varnished face.
