PG. Standard Gunks Rack. Gear in the P1 crack is harder to get that it would seem from first glance

Climb the corner/crack from the base of the Rusty Trifle block, then diagonal left to a right-facing corner. Up this to a ledge and belay tree. Surmount the roof on the right and up to the GT ledge. Walk left a bit and climb a right-facing corner up to the top. The gray "Dick" has upgraded this climb to a 5.7 for P1.

5 out of 5 stars P2 is where it's at

P1 is fine. P2 is crazy fine. Looks totally crazy from the belay, but, it climbs really well. Big holds and gear abound. Once you pull the roof, you have pleasant face climbing to the GT ledge. Rap with a single 70 off the Sixish tree to the top of the Sixish block. An easy down climb gets you to the ground. Trust me, the down climb is super easy.

5 out of 5 stars Lots of fun

P1 is very different from P2. Both are a lot of fun. P1 feels like it has no distinct crux. P2 is beautiful and airy through the traverse.
