Dan Schuerch on South Pacific starting ledge.
Crux is the top 3' arm crack. This can be skipped though and the crack used to build the trad anchor.
Left of Amazon Woman and South Africa. Follow the line of least resistance by the coast of South America, but stay left or else you'll end up on South Africa. Ends either at the arm chimney or on top of it. I recommend to belay the second from here and then rap/climb to Amazon Woman anchors. Its really an easy 5th class traverse, but you want to be roped up!
All types: small nuts to large cams. Can get away with nothing larger than a #3 camalot.

I recommend putting a #4 Camalot or a Large Supercam under the overlap at the top of the beginning slab. Then you can more comfortably fiddle with a nut in the crack above the inverted V in the first overlap. Definitely a mini-crux stepping up on that first overlap.
