Description 

Boulder up the gully from right of Fire Escape until you get below the overhang.

Pitch 1: Climb crack systems to the overhang.
Pitch 2: Climb the overhang and then continue up. We avoided the second overhang, because it looked a little loose, by going right out of the gully and then coming back into the crack system above. Stop at the nice ledge.
Pitch 3: Climb the dihedral. Place some good gear near the top of the dihedral before heading left to the anchor.

Location 

Descent by rappelling for the anchor. The top rapel is doable with a single 70m rope if you are willing to down climb/walk the area from the 1st belay to the tree

Protection 

Trad rack.
