BETA PHOTO: pitch one. The pillar's about 50 feet.
Park at the upper parking lot, cross the bridge, walk west, then hike up the steep slope to the base of the climb. The first pitch is steep, fun and the best part of the route.
this climb can be found in the next drainage west of PND. Rap the route.

An optional descent can made from the top of the climb by traversing right (west) along a wide ledge system to a snow gully. Hike or bum slide down from here.

I'd recommend the walk-off. We did it today and it went quickly. Much easier than rigging raps from trees scattered around the drainage and/or V-threads. Just head up and right from the top of the second pitch (the 20 ft. pillar/curtain) until you get to a nice wide overlook.
