P1: Make a bouldery move to gain a good stance below an outside corner facing right. Climb the face and corner to a handcrack and climb that to the end of the steep section. Follow parallel cracks up the right edge of the slab, over a boulder, to a fixed belay on a spruce tree.
P2: Climb parallel cracks in the slab to the outside corner facing right (i.e., the right edge of the steep headwall). Ascend blocky ramp to a steep dihedral and climb this to a large wooded ledge.


On the Isobuttress near the right end of the main face; 5' right of the handcrack that becomes an offwidth (a.k.a. E-Stim), at a thin vertical seam.
Descent: Rappel off the pine tree into the Amphitheatre (70m rope recommended), climb 3rd class up and left to get to the Diagonal Ramp, or make a minor 5th class traverse 35' left to the anchors at the top of Carpenter & Das.


Good cams and stoppers.
