Climb out of the cave in the center of the wall. The first move is the tough part, and its very height dependent (though do-able if you're short). You have a slopey side-pull for your left hand, you're leaning way back, and you need to get up to the pocket which has a little feature in the bottom to help you pull until you can use the huge left side. Be resourceful. After that, a juggy overhanging arÍte awaits you, then once the climb gets less-than-vertical, it gets pretty run-out, though it's a lot easier. If you bypass the cave beneath the first bolt, it's a 10c.
5 bolts to chains. If you're careful setting it up, you can toprope this, but you'll swing due to the overhang. Best idea is to clip the 1st bolt from the left side before climbing directly.
