Good steep climbing with an enigmatic crux. Start below a crack, close to the left-hand end of the crag, just right of Bezel's groove.
1) 5b, 35m. A steep start gains the crack/groove, climb this to the roof using some pockets near the arete. A hard move through the roof leads up to a reasonable ledge.
2) 4c, 12m. The large wide crack on the left is slightly loose and blocky, but it does lead to the top. Alternatively, abseil off a spike to avoid this pitch.
