Some beta:

Start with left hand up high, throw to huge pocket up and right with your right hand. Then move your left hand up to a small obvious crimp just to the left of your right hand.
Now (the only way i could do this) paste your right foot out right anywhere you can and hike your left foot way up into the pocket that your left hand started on.Lean in and slowly reach up for the sharp featured crimp way up and left with your left hand. Stand up, make the sketchy clip and then its 5.10 to the anchors.

While this route certainly has limited appeal I enjoyed the technical start.

The climber and belayer should use caution near the second bolt. A crash here results in a collision of the two.
