P1: Climb up past two separated right facing corners to an overhang. Traverse right a little under overhang to another right facing corner over the roof. Climb through right facing corner to the base of a white sickle shaped ramp. Climb up the sickle left to its top and a small ledge.

P2: Traverse right a few feet and up to the roof. * Continue the traverse right 20' and turn the roof just right of a the pine tree in the corner over the roof. Belay at the tree. * Variation 1. Follow Redirectionalism over the roof and traverse right past the black sickle ledge to the Parousia belay at the end of pitch three.

P3: Traverse left a few feet and climb up to the beginning of a black sickle shaped ledge which faces left. Climb past the sickle and over some small roofs to then traverse off to the right down a long straight crack that makes up the border along the top of a giant block. Place gear over the block for a hanging belay.

P4: Move back to the Z (the overhangs here form a Z as seen from the road) and climb up and left and left again under overhangs to their end, to then climb up a few feet midway before the giant roof. Move left and down to a hanging belay at the top of a hanging block, we called this block the tuning fork. Variation 2. At this point in our climb when we finished the fourth pitch we top-roped the tuning fork below, which is that block in the smaller roof below the larger Manifest Destiny roof.

P5" Climb up to the roof and traverse left to climb into the feature we named The Bombay Chimney to the top.
