Climb the obvious striking corner up the center of the overhanging wall. Start up the moderate slab to the overhang at the base of the corner. Get small cams and fire over the bulge into the corner(crux). Continue up the corner placing gear onto a protruding blade of rock under a roof. Pull around the roof right and continue up the corner on big holds to a knifeblade. The corner ends and finish up another 30' of easy slab to the trees above.

Standard Trad Rack.
I found that two .5 are nice, and 000-0 sizes protect the crux pretty well.
