Better shot of the crux.   It's well protected.

Climbs much better than it looks. Start up easy mossy slab (5.4) for 4 bolts. Some gardening maybe be needed. Get to the overlap where the business begins. Clip the bolt protect the move pulling over the overlap and down climb a little bit into the corner of the overlap. Good hold and fancy footwork will get you over and a high left foot will get you stabilized again. A few more stemming moves and you'll be at the chains. Don't discount this route - it's more fun than it looks.

I concur with the sentiment that this one climbs better than it looks. Worth at least two stars and one go at it, if you can look beyond the unattractive start.
