Pitch 1: Start on mossy covered slab thats right on the road. Belay from a tree in the corner. I left my webbing and Dlink up there for everyone to use. Pitch 2: Start at tree belay and climb up the corner to the base of the third pitch, which is the large face with an obvious hand crack running vertically up the face. This belay is really awkward and can be reached by climbing left below the roof and working your way out, around it, and back. Pitch 3: Climb up the crack system in the center of the face to a tree belay on top.

Descent Options:

Rappel from a large pine tree at the top down into the gully to the ease, then walk down the gully back to the base. Be very careful to not knock rocks down as they could easily hit cars including your own.
