Locate a short (25'), fat pillar with several different crack lines up it 30' right of Black and Tan staging area. The right/center line is the nicest, though expect some blocks. On top of this pillar are two bolts for optional belay, which is nice for the climber, maybe worse for the belayer.
American Caesar takes the steep, clean dihedral left of Tainted Love. From the top of the fat pillar, pass large leaning block via hands in slabby left facing dihedral and enter the steep jams and stemming. The crack varies in size from tips to hands and always seems to be changing. Expect some semi technical stemming, while placing an assortment of thin gear complimented by beefier pieces at points. When the gear runs out at the top, it's time to turn it on.
