This part, getting started is so easy

then it gets a bit complicated when the ramp/flake quits.

At the top of the flake there is very shallow left-facing flake, it looks like a "C" facing backwards. Some climbers lead this out and up and back to the bolt but the safer move is to traverse into the area directly below the bolt and move straight up over the smooth section of rock. This is a dicey smear minimal edge move but you don't face a pendulum if you slip.
