  1. (12). Climb a short slab to a chimney, then up the chimney. Part way, either step left then up a stepped cracked, or continue up the chimney. Belay on the obvious ledge in an alcove.

  2. (12) Traverse right, past a wide-step continue traversing around the corner, continue traversing past bolted anchors to belay behind a large boulder.

  3. (13) At the left end of the boulder, climb a jagged right leaning crack/weakness into a chimney than past a small roof to a ledge.
