Start at the ridge at the bottom of the canyon and follow it as it climbs / traverses left (South) 800 feet.
To negotiate the gaps on the ridge, you may have to downclimb to the middle of the face in certain places.
The summit of the ridge is not the tallest rock in the area. Roach suggests downclimbing the summit to the Northwest and climbing a 100 foot rock that sits West of the Jaws summit. This rock in the highest point of the Western Ironing Board.
Standard Flatiron rack.

A nice route that is far longer than one would suspect. There are cruxes much harder than 5.0 if you don't climb way down and left at the breaks in the ridge. I did some 5.6 or harder going between the various rocks, but some of this could have been avoided by climbing down and back up a ways.
