This is a pleasant, non-strenuous, technical bit of climbing. It starts just to the right of Crack Where The Sun Don't Shine, a small, hanging, right-facing dihedral.
Move up pleasant slab to a good rest at an undercling ~20 feet up. Delicately move up using opposition moves on a bit of near vertical terrain. There may be a left hand deadpoint. 50', worth the effort.
Apparently you can use the arete on the right to make it easier.
This had been given a name within the database, but someone has deleted it. Others have provided a name, Lightning Strike. This may have been climbed in the 1980s by Ed Ash.

Smaller holds than many routes, but more positive than the other hard slabs on the N Face.

Had a blast on this short route. 5.11 sounds good.
