One of the best cracks of its grade at the NRG. It's best to pitch this thing out to reach the 30ft-high starting ledge. Most people climb up the boulders/gully feature from the left; it's not too bad but you'll still want to place a few pieces. There's also a sandbagged 12c NRG sport start on the Naz Naz, or a worthy single-bolted, PG-13 12a start up the center of the ledge feature, if you want to up the ante a little.
Once at the base of the obvious crack, pick your jaw up off the ledge and enjoy bomber NRG fingerlock/mini-jugs, with the cruxes being longer reaches between good locks. Take a nice selection of medium to large nuts, as well as small and medium-sized cams; gear is very straightforward. There are bolted anchors at a stance about ten feet below the clifftop. As I remember, you cannot rappel to the ground with a 70m rope, but it's easy for multiple people to toprope from the ledge.
