Sheltered from the sun on the back left corner this is the third ridge of the pyramid. Slightly shorter then the front routes due to starting off the little rocks at the base, again this is a crimp and smear fest for the first few moves, to add to that there was a little black lichen or some such at the bottom making it even more slippery, I dusted my first foot "hold" with some chalk and that seemed to help, helps to move fast to minimize slippage.


On the back left ridge in the shadow of the peak is where you will find kur, start off of the small rock ever so slightly to the right of the ridge, find something your hands like in the divots and knobs and pull yourself onto the stone, once up angle left to grab the ridge and you can follow it up with good holds all the way to the tip. Again descend off the backside.
