Climb directly up to the very odvious crack near the top.

Protection 

You can either top rope this, using the bolts to the left of the crack, trad lead this, or solo it - which isn't too scary.

Takes lots of good gear, 2"-4" pieces will sew it up well.

one of the bolt achors at the top of this climb is rattling around and loose, the bolt seems solid but probably not a bad idea to back up the bolt with a cam (I used at #3 camalot) just for redundency with the top rope set up.
