BETA PHOTO: Sewn up with gear.
An excellent route for beginners on toprope, or for beginning trad leaders. The first 20 feet are the hardest part. There is a microwave-sized loose block midway up the boulder that is a little sketchy to stand on.
Left of the Hyper-Gamma-Spaces roof, this is the first (rightmost) crack.
Takes plenty of gear, standard (small) rack will work. Boulders at the top work for a toprope.

Agree that the crux is right off the ground through the bulge. However, I would suggest budding trad leaders start on A Flake Called Lee before leading this route.

I second the recommendation that new trad leaders not start on this. Even though I have led this one a few times, the start is still very awkward for me. Maybe, as the name suggests, my tallness works against me here, but I have a tougher time on this start than I do anywhere on some of the 5.6-5.8 I have led out here.
A Flake Called Lee has a very heady move for a new leader as well. New leaders should start at Boy Scout Ledges instead where there are some nice 5.3 and 5.4 lines, most of which are straightforward.
