Technique-intensive, a little stemming and good footwork will make this one feel a more like its rating. Crux comes about mid-way.
Follow the trail up to the cliff and you will be standing in a small alcove. Mission goes up the the huge dihedral just to your right.

This has apparently been upgraded to 511.a do to greasy rock. 5.11 feels about right. The crux is very well protected, but yes, greasy! Really fun moves. There is a loose hold at the top that seems like it will hold for a while, but be careful.

I second the loose rock at the top of the route. Still holding in its groove, but be very careful for your belayer's sake!

Fun technical crux. Compared to the other routes here, I didn't think it's greasy at all. At least not the footholds. Ditto on the loose rock near the top.
