5 out of 5 stars Fun climb

P1) Start in the middle of the wall and climb a short right-facing corner system which protects well (thin pro), then continue up and left on unprotected but very easy face (5.0) to a bolt anchor. P2) Up and right along a ramp/flake system to reach a bolt (5.8) and then into an right-facing corner atop which is a bolted belay. P3) Up a crack which turns into a flared chimney. Belay from gear at the top and descend via Bye Gully.
