Around the corner to the left - friction up the face. Several variants possible.

Thin face, left side, using the "bullet hole" pocket in the wall.

Super-thin face, right side.

Jump to sloping top of rock and mantel.

Climb the left-curving seam until it becomes a flake.

Climb the vertical finger crack. Good spotter needed, the block in the bottom of the crack can be an ankle breaker.

Climb the thin seam right of the finger crack.

On the next block to the left -- sometimes called the American Express Boulder, this is the high left face, which has TR bolts on top.

Right most face, west-facing on the boulder.
