Description 

Left of Pure Fun, start under a large square boulder; gain the boulder and move into a prominent left facing corner; follow the crack up a slab (gets up to ~5") past a piton to a large ledge system. Build a belay here.

The second pitch moves up and left. Gain the next ledge either by a squeeze chimney (I got a tipped out #6 c4 here which walked out after I passed it), or follow the finger crack (my follower chose this). Traverse left around the corner, and continue up a flake. I went right and then left again with good protection on solid jugs and jams. It looked like another line went left from the flake.

Location 

Left of Pure Fun, start under a large square boulder. Top out.

Protection 

QD for the pin. Singles of cams, finger to 6" to sew it up. Nuts.

I did an alternate first pitch about 30 feet to the left of the proper start. It's also 5.6ish, hands to fists. A #4 BD cam was useful. It joins Pedestal on the big ledge.
