Lichen takes flight under the impact of Melissa's ...
Follow a left-facing dihedral off the start and head up to an arete, then find a solid crack. Either follow the crack up and left to reach the far side of the belay ledge, or follow the arete directly to the ledge. The route almost definitely continues from here, but you're on your own at that point.
This route follows a dihedral and crack system just a short distance to the left of Toto, which can be found next to the Steve Garvey memorial plaque. To get down, either rappel the route angling to the right so you'll reach the ground near Toto, step twenty feet to the right on a ledge and follow the next pitch of Toto past a fixed anchor to the top of the first section of The Diamond, or find yourself another pitch that leads to that ledge, and walk off. The walkoff is a little sketchy.
