A vertical face leads to a lower angled section below a slightly reachy roof move (crux), and finishes with some enjoyable face moves to the anchor.
Just left of the major break between the right and left parts of the cliff. A small pine is located just above the "roof" portion of the route.
6 bolts, sport anchor

Lower part is technical, upper part is overhanging on good holds. If the ledge in the middle wasn't there, I'd give it 4 stars.
I was told a hold broke left of the first bolt above the ledge. One could see where it used to be, and little crimp is all that remains. Without this hold, grade would be more like 5.11c. I disagree, once can just walk right on the ledge, go up, then traverse back left along the horizontal crack. I think it's more like 5.10d.

Being 6' tall, I was able to use a reachy right hand undercling and then power straight up over the roof above the bolt with a good left hand. I'd say it went at 5.11a for me, but my moves are not possible for anyone under 5' 11''. I am told the variation to the right is quite fun, possible for everyone, and goes at 5.10c.

Since the hold broke the route is even better!
Same rating, 11a. I am not giving any beta, but am not talking about the detour to the right, nor the way Cory describes.
