|I believe this is the only free route to the summit rated under 5.11.|

This appears to be #88 in Hubbel's 1997 guide (page 76: climbs 86, 87, 88 have no names, ratings, or descriptions). A good adventure.
A #6 would have been nice for the second bit of offwidth.
From the summit, a rap with a single 70m rope will just barely put you on the ledge at the top of the chimney (a short bit of unroped easy scrambling may be necessary to reach the fixed pin anchor on that ledge). You may have to leave some tat on the summit bolts to extend to the edge, though. Then a second single rope rap back to the deck.
