Use this excellent photo with route overlay instead of trying to decipher the confusing text description offered by Mr. Kalinowski. If you don't mind some easy 5.8 climbing, avoid the rope drag of the first right traverse by starting 40 feet right on the other side of the big boulder at the base of the climb and go up the slightly left leaning crack. This start makes the route easy to do in two pitches by going all the way to the blocks just below the left facing dihedral for your first belay.
