C.O. on the Grooving Up Slowly
The easiest route here, but don't let that fool you. If you miss a hold, the crux can get significantly more challenging. Climb the blunt arete to anchors. (Indy)
Right most route on the cliff.
SS ring top anchors available. Most people top rope this route though it could be done on gear.

Gear options are few, probably not best for a new leader. It looks possible to access anchors for top-rope, but it didn't look easy. South-facing and very hot in the summer with no trees for shade.

But in the fall/winter/spring, this wall is awesome.

Beautiful in 46F weather when protected from a 20mph west wind - almost t-shirt weather. Gear was good until the top, didn't see anything good for the last 10' of easy climbing on the ramp but you can escape to even easier terrain up the gully to the right and clip anchors from the top. Anchors are in great condition. A 5.6 leader might be better off on the bolted route just to the left of this.
