The crux moves gain a good stance in the hanging groove. Continue directly up to wall to a good break at half height. From here continue up on easier ground to the anchors.
Start 10 feet right of the toe.

Fun route. The first part is excellent. The lower angled section above is scruffy and needs some cleaning/more ascents. Fortunately, the moves are pretty easy. Nice, strenuous, well-protected crux. Worth doing.
