Start climbing in the smooth left-facing dihedral. Using various techniques work your way to the crux which sits about half way up at a bulge. Pass this stricture and gain the routes token feature, a large, hollow, detached flake. Climb this to its end and finish out the remaining fifteen feet in a hand size crack.
A fun route with good gear and a comfortable amount of insecurity.
