No gear for the first 30 feet till you hit the upper crack. The crux is the first couple of move just off the deck. A good TR for the area.
Face just right of Yee Haw. Hike off or rap from the trees.
Gear to #3, no anchor.

After you pull out of bouldering range on this route it really mellows out. Depending on you comfort level climbing low angles, it goes from 5.6-8 slab up to a crack system. It makes a very straight forward X route...pretty much just as easy to free solo the thing. You could probably pad the base if you are worried about a bad landing on the boulder start. Really nice and challenging moves to start and then a mellow finish to relax and enjoy.

Another fun variation that is a little different from in the book is to keep climbing up the face after you hit the diagonal crack. Instead of finishing out in the crack to the top, plug a few pieces and head back out on the face for another 15 or so feet of climbing adds a nice little ending I think and it doesn't make it any harder.
