The most prominent feature on the wall is a large left-facing dihedral with a perfect finger to wide-hands crack running up the center of it. The line is far more overhanging than it looks from the ground but the dihedral allows you to either stem or partial-chimney and make life a lot easier than itd be if just a splitter crack. Ignimbrite isnt the most gentle on the hands but its still a clean crack and worth doing if not just to get a break from the repetitious pocket-pulling at the rest of the crag.
A small rack of cams from finger to wide-hands, perhaps a few extra in the wide stuff. You can make a reach at the top and clip the anchors to the arête route to the right, but then you wouldnt get to do the exit moves. A large tree sits at the top just begging to be anchored to while you bring up your second; an easy walk-off to the climbers left.
