From the belay, head up and left to a bolt then attack the thin crack straight up. Follow this up to the crux roof and a line of bolts up the headwall. The roof (crux) has a high bolt that can be difficult to clip then typically move a bit to the right to turn the roof or try it straight on. The headwall offers up continuous climbing at a slightly easier grade than the crack and roof and keeps you on your toes.
A great line that offers up a little of everything. Face, crack, a roof and good position.
Bolts with thin gear, RP's to finger size cams for the 20 feet of crack. Tree to anchor off of about 25 feet back from the top of the wall.

The old "Hikers & Climbers Guide" may be mixed up with this climb. It lists it as 5.13a, and shows an independent bolted first pitch to this climb left of Ms. Piggy, which isn't there I think.

Certainly just bad beta. The new info is correct.
