Description 

This is the diagonal finger and hand crack. The crux is at the very top, best not blow it. Its pretty consistently the same difficulty throughout, actually.

Protection 

I suppose one could lead this with just one each of purple, green, and red BD (finger-hand size). Anchoring may be a problem though: on top, there are only some very rusty, ancient bolts. I would not trust them.

Descent 

At the top, it seems like there are two finishes: you can go right and up slopey steps. Or you can follow the crack all the way to the left. It ends at a nice jug.

In either case, the easiest way off the pyramid is on the slabby side left of the crack (where the left finish ends). There is a crack in the slab which can be laybacked.

Down climb the slabby crack until you can reach the tree. Stem between the tree and slab for a couple moves until you are back safely on the ground.
