P1: Begin on left side of wall where rock whitens. Start on a small slopey ledge moving up a left facing flake onto another left facing flake continuing up and right, gaining a ledge. Move right and climb flakey arete trending left to gain another small ledge in front of large, left facing flake system. Continue up flakes moving right until a good belay stance at a horizontal crack, left and below a large right-leaning roof.
