P1 (5.9) : Follow sweet finger crack inside a left-slanting ramp, before crack widens amid a sea of big knobs to either side. Comfy belay ledge at 150' above ground. P2 (5.7R) : Follow the big knobs up and right to top; sparse gear.

Descent Options:

Rap with two ropes from first pitch anchors. Or do both pitches, topout, and scramble up higher, then walkoff to climber's left.

5 out of 5 stars Great Fingers!

This was the best and longest finger crack that I have climbed! Continuous perfect finger jams are what I live for. The roof wasn't bad and the climbing above changed but was still super quality.

2 out of 5 stars Just ok

Nice finger crack. Agan, for a Yosemite climb it is just ok. So much more to see and do.

3 out of 5 stars -

70m rope works well to TR laps from the anchors.

3 out of 5 stars Cruiser

Easy 5.9 fingers to buckets and the anchor. Very aesthetic route though the second pitch is not worth doing. You can barely make it to the ground with little (easy) downclimbing with a 60m rope.
