The route lies about 1/2 way up Hawk Eagle Ridge. It is an obvious right-facing dihedral capped by a large roof. The single-pitch line may not be worthy of a trip to the crag alone, but if you want to also do Die Heeda Rule (5.11) Brother Jug (5.10a), and Tombstone (5.11a) among others nearby, it is a worthy day. You will find the climbing at the crux to be powerful and gymnastic, and probably only 5.10 if you have large hands.
The protection is standard, with the crux being just above a large-hand or even fist-sized camming unit.
This is a good roof with good foot holds and good hand jams. Also, if you want to add a good hand crack to the beginning of the pitch, you can do the first part of January Playmate and traverse over under the roof to link up to the Self Abuse roof. There is a horn/block at the top of the roof that we rappeled off to get down.
My self esteem has been restored after seeing the rating of this climb on Mountain Project. The Steve Levin guide calls this 10a, and we thought it would be a good start of the season climb. After 2 or 3 hangs at the lip I got it, and the moves seemed reasonable, but to onsight it seemed pretty hard. Rossiter calls this 10b/c. If you are short this could be really hard since you might not be able to reach from the giant foothold out left to the crack in the roof.

I definitely suggest starting with January Playmate and traversing into the roof from that route.

Fun climbing, always have gear at or above your head. Save a #3 Camalot for the exit move.
