Description:

Start at the base of the Dome about 40 feet left of the three overlaps at the begining of Cozyhang. Scramble up to a thin crack, traverse left and then back right. Lean over on a couple of chickenheads and make your way up a 5.7 hand/fist crack to the left of the huge overhang. Belay above the overhang to avoid rope drag. Head right to another large overhang and crank though the slot to an easier 5.5 hand crack to the top. Walk off as for East Slab.

The roof on P2 is stiff for the 5.7 rating but protects well.

Overhang is tougher then expected, actually went off route and around overhang.
