This turns out to be the Nose. The top of the finger crack just left and up of center of the photo is the crux. Well protectable with cams or nuts though. We mistook this as the first pitch of the West Ridge. I'm not sure where that is now.....

Climbed this yesterday (Easter Sunday 2013, March 31st). The blocky terrain in the right side of the photo does indeed appear to be the traditional start for the west ridge. Those wanting a tougher start can use The Nose. It appears you can exit the shelf (left) in a couple of spots, if you follow it to it's end, there is an awkward but well protected move to get up off the shelf.

Looking up at P1. Starts just out of view to the left, and follows the right leaning crack before trending left. Based on the posted topo, P1 ends just above the crack, but it's easy to link P1 and 2. Getting off the top of this crack felt like the toughest move of the day.
