Use the flakes toward the left end of the ledge to boulder up and traverse right to clip the low first bolt. Work your way up the face to the corner below the roof. Collect yourself, then swing over the roof and head straight up the face above past more bolts to anchors.
Fun moves throughout, and easier than it looks from the ground.
Down the cliff a ways. Once you walk around the huge boulder next to the cliff with the chockstone, look for a series of left-facing flakes leading up to a ledge about 10-15 feet off the ground. There should be a bolt on the face just below the middle of this ledge. From above the first bolt, two routes diverge. The route that angles up and right toward a short, left-facing corner capped by a roof is Ticks Are For Kids.

Pumpy, but not sure I would call it 10a. Won't disrupt the overwhelming consensus up top. I felt it climbed like a 5.9 in the gym almost. Super juggy. A bit heady at times perhaps, with the one long clip. If you haven't climbed 10a yet, give this a go, or the one next to it that shares the first bolt--paraphernalia. I found both to be chill for their grades.
