Really fun climb with an alpine feel to it. Loose and dirty at the start to get to a ledge with broken blocks. Then turn a bouldery move (crux?) to get into a crack and the quality dramatically improves. The hand crack that finishes P1 is outstanding. P2 is the ramp pitch, following an undercling that goes up and to the right. Fun moves and easier than P1. We belayed at the far end of a sloping platform at the end of the undercling/lieback. For P3, we went right off the belay through some fun jamming/stemming to an arete and then worked back left on thin face moves to a crack, belaying just over the lip where it eases to 2nd class.

Overall a fun climb! The approach pitch (pitch 0) is on flakes and boulders with a lot of vegetation. From there the climb gets better with a hand crack. The "Ramp" pitch is stellar and has good climbing on great rock.
