The route starts at yellow marker '33c.' To the right of this is a fallen over pillar that rests against the main wall. Climb the face to the overhangs. At this point, you can go either left or right. Traverse left under the pillar-style roof. Ascend the off-width crack to a ledge. Ascend the multiple ledges (grade 4) to the cliff top.

Trad. The off-width requires large pro (#4 works).

The route starts at yellow marker '33c.' To the right of this is a fallen over pillar that rests against the main wall. Climb the face to the overhangs. At this point, you can go either left or right. Move right under the pillar-style roof. Pull the multi-feature crux (roof, right facing corner and arching crack) to a ledge. If you are tall, getting started at the crux will prove interesting. If you are short, the upper section of the crux will be your challenge. No worries either way, as the pro is good through here and can always have a solid piece above you.

From the ledge just below the tree that is sitting on a higher ledge, you can traverse left and up to a tree and belay from here. Once your follower has ascended, you can climb the easy terrain to the cliff top. Option B is to traverse right to the Fixe anchors atop Second Agreement. Alternatively, at the ledge, you can traverse right to the Fixe anchors atop Second Agreement.
