A fun little mixed pitch that stays far enough right of the terrible rock to warrant climbing.

Pic above is wrong for route line. It will be pretty obvious when standing at the base. I went up the giant creaking flakes pretty directly or slightly left of the bolt line. The holds are good as long as they stay on the wall. Under the roof something in the 1" cam range with a couple of full length slings will protect your initial foray as you look for pro above the roof. Slot a good nut and cast off. Holds are big and it is over soon. A couple more nuts or small cams will take you to the summit. Walk off to climbers right or rap from the 2 bolt anchor on top.
