The crux is the first pitch. The rock is very polished and you must be comfortable with climbing well above gear on the easier sections.
The first pitch begins beneath a crack that runs up through an overhang. Note, there is a much more difficult route to the left that is also a crack that climbs and overhang. I would avoid this.
Some fixed pro. Belays generally have a single bolt cemented into the rock. You can protect the crux.
