Atop the dihedral, we went right up a groove. A couple not great small placements and 5.7 face climbing leads to a bolt, then easier climbing past two more bolts to a two bolt belay in a scoop. Last pitch from here goes up with no pro to top out.
(edit) the second time on it, we went up the crack just left from the belay atop the dihedral (seems as described up top). Some gear, then runout face - didn't find a great belay so I traversed over to the bolted belay mentioned above. I preferred the other finish.
Didn't bring a #4 the first time, did bring one the second.

|The undercling traverse at top of p1 is super cool... but you are standing on an enormous layer of exfoliating slab. All sorts of cams go in the crack above but they may not hold a fall. It's a fun route.|
