At the Neanderthal Wall as you're going south on the trail, go past the large block and find an arete on the wall with a small alcove to the right of the arete. In the back of the alcove, climb the double cracks. The first moves off the deck are reachy, but the climb offers a fine, moderate lead.
Standard rack. Some hexes work well in the cracks.

Please note that this route follows the cracks marked as number 2 in the bottom picture.

Damn fun route. Very good beginner trad-lead in my opinion. don't be afraid to reach a bit higher and find much better holds. The more timid you are, the harder the route. Either way, fun-fun-fun.

Great route with great protection. I wish it was longer. The opening moves are steep, and there's some loose rock at the crux before entering the chimney. No way I'd send a beginner leader up this one, but it's a good place to practice setting some anchors at the bottom.
