P1) The first 20 ft can be protected with a couple b.d. nuts, #.4 camalot, and a TCU#1(5.7). Arrive at a ledge and climb slab past 3 bolts(crux)(5.9+?), mantle ledge and arrive at a two bolt anchor(~80ft).
P2) Runout slab (~90 ft)(5.9+?)
P3) Runout slab (~160 ft)(5.9).

Exit- Walk north past Leopard Skin and down the beaten path.


Take Jenny's Canyon trail until the trail comes within ~15 ft of the southern tip of the formation. This climbs a long ridge type slab. Start to the right of the massive boulder

First pitch is harder than 5.9 (crux move is about 10d in my opinion, but I am no expert slab climber).

Though pitches 2 and 3 are much easier (5.9 sounds about right), be warned that both involve severe run-outs over rock of questionable quality.
