Very nice climbing to the rap-station, the climbing above is very dirty and not recommended. Two ropes best if you do the whole climb (and needed for rappel). Start from a block (with 15ft drop-off on the right) below the large, orange left-facing corner, 50 feet right of Wegetables. Pitch 1: Climb the corner past first overhang to a thin horizontal that goes out right. Traverse right (crux) to arete and move up and a bit right to some blocks (optional belay), then up left and up to ledge and huge pine tree belay/rap-station (115 ft rappel)

very awkward climbing and belay stance right after the traverse, not sure if worth it...the rap station was pretty scary...
