Description:

This route is the same as the Left and Center routes except that Pitch 1 starts 50 feet (and up hill) from these routes. P1 has very smooth granit and very littel pro. After about 40 feet of slab climbing (no pro) you can make a traverse on a 15 foot tilted slaby ledge to a flaky feature. You can traverse up this feature (maybe one piece of pro) another 25 feet to a small ledge. This ledge can be protected and traverse 15 feet to the right to a nice verticle crack system that is just under the first peak of the prominent feature on the face called the "W" climb this crack to the large ledge under the "W" and traverse right of left depending which route you want to continue on (left for the left route and right for the center route).
