Climb up the face then left to a dish. Move up and back to the right then up. Be prepared to do a near grade step or 2 left about 25' up with groundfall potential. I could not find another placement (my partner checked when he followed and didn't see anything either). Bolt and piton at the top of P1, just below a big pine. Climb left through a groove on a ledge. Then up a slab to a bolt anchor. Some nice moves and this is probably the crux pitch. P3 is an open slab that you can pick some fun lines through. Keep it as hard/easy as you like. Stay left and it went for about 35 meters. After P1 I was placing gear every 10 feet. If you enjoy slabs and don't mind the first pitch, it's a fantastic climb. The bolts looked brand new.

Linked the first two pitches. The first pitch is a scary 5.6 run out (had only two pieces on first pitch). Took me forever to figure out the crux on the second pitch. Didn't want to fall even though the pin was at my waist (rope stretch would have taken me further than I wished).
