Climb the gulley B/t the north and middle tooth to notch. A chockstone in this gully ws probably the crux. Take a crumbly crack system from there to summit of middle tooth. From here you can downclimb the south side a hundred feet or so (5.4) and then bag the south tooth (5.5ish).

Descent Options:

downclimb or rappel route.
