P2: Step right to a sloping, right-facing corner and climb up and slightly left to the base of Humphrey's Head. Go straight up Humphrey's to a crack with some old pins. Pull the top directly. (5.7-)
(5.8 Var: At the start of P2 you can climb a thin finger crack on the face instead of the sloping, right-facing corner.)

This is a fun route, though a little overgrown down low. It will definitely benefit from more traffic. Airy at the top with a few nice exposed moves. Highly recommend the 5.8 variation.

P1 is fairly low key 5.3-5.4 climbing till you gain the upper ledge. The 5.8 variation crack to the right provides a few nice moves before rather chunky rock. Top out through the crack was nice. Be careful of loose blocks.
