Obvious long traverse approximately 40-50 yards east and slightly uphill of Nooks Rock. In the shade all afternoon. Start on big holds on the left side of the rock and traverse to the far right end. Benningfield rated it V5. Chip Phillips calls it V4. Feels soft for a Benningfield V5.
Maybe a pad.

This climbs nicely, V4 though. There is a nice boulder sitting 25' or so North of the beginning that has a nice V5 roof on it, and another just uphill 20' South that is probably V7 or harder out a needle-like prow. Tons of overhanging climbing in this area and rarely crowded!
