Description 

Two variations exist. The left variation may go slightly easier than the right.

Left (North) - start to the left of the roof, climb to the undercling/overhang, surmount it (crux), and go left around the arete into a crack. Follow it to the top.

Right (South) - start with a bouldery roof move (crux) into a crack. Continue past some broken, blocky rock into another crack, and follow it to the top.

Location 

They are located in the southern portion of DR. From the north, it looks like a nose sticking out. Start with the bouldery roof moves.

Walk off.

Protection 

No fixed gear. Small to medium gear. Protect the first move of the right route with a BD #0.4.

If anyone knows actual names for these lines, please let me know. I don't assume to name the routes if someone already has. The profile of the formation looks like a nose, but that name is taken by a much regal bit of stone.
