First, climb onto the low, outshooting base. From there, follow the white stained, set in area of the wall up making awkward but easy moves until you reach the large diagonal mantle. Getting from here to the top-out is the crux. My favorite way of doing this is going to the left a bit where a left-hand sloper and right-hand crimp can be used to make a large move to the top-out. I've also seen people mantle on the large hold and move to the right, and a dyno from the mantle seems possible.
I've given the route the lowest 5.9 because, while most of the route is quite easy, the last move feels more like a 5.10 move. Feel free to suggest better grading if you'd like.


Go up the small hill right after Pulling Punches. The route is stained white from something, and may be easier to recognize from the top.


Anchor chains on bolts.
Above Pulling Punches there's a large rock with anchor chains. Move to the right to find another one of these and rappel down from there. The chains you want are the first around the very clear corner.
