Pitch one - 5.10a/b. Scramble rightward up the slab, clip the first bolt, and then follow the corner and face for 120+ feet (past a rap anchor of open-shuts) to the anchor. Pitch two - 5.11a. Follow face holds up right from the anchor and then stem and pinch your way up the technical overhanging corner. Either rap the route after pitch two, or do a trad pitch (reported at 5.9 - I haven't done it) to the summit. Note - both belayer and climber should wear a helmet, and beware of loose rock!
