This climbs the striking central arete and overhang in the middle of the cliff.
Start on the arete, and make a balancy sequence of moves passed the 1st bolt and up to the 2nd bolt.
Continue directly up the arete to the overhang and make a hard sequence of moves to gain better holds in the groove above the overhang. Clip the 3rd bolt and continue directly to the anchors.

Thin and technical moves up the arete lead to a somewhat awkward crux just under the roof. Once the jug is reached over the roof it's about 5.9 to the anchors.
