Pitch 1 - Climb crack and face past a fixed pin (can't really see from ground) to a roof. Pull the roof on finger locks (felt hard for 5.10) and step left to a junky crack. Climb this crack past a small tree to a ledge. Climb 15' higher to a second ledge and belay from a good-sized tree.

Pitch 2 - Move up/left and follow a low-angle finger crack up a dirty groove to a tree at the top. The climbing isn't hard, but the crack is full of dirt/grass and you have to "garden-out" placements for gear. Lots of lichen as well, making for exciting feet.

(2 pitches, ~200', 5.10++) Not really sure I could recommend this one.
