Climb up through underclings and smeary feet to a balancy crux around the third bolt. After a small bulge, the route moves up and left, following a vast slab for another 100+ feet. The slab features much easier climbing than the start but offers plenty of opportunities to blow it. When the angle kicks back even more, belay from a pair of old bolts (these are also the top anchors for Apache Acid) or scramble about 30 feet higher and belay from a pair of glue-ins. It took almost all of a 70m rope to reach the glue-ins, so I'm not sure whether you could go that far on a 60m.
A new intermediate anchor has been added, providing the option of climbing the steeper bottom section and skipping about half of the slab.
To descend, walk off by scrambling up and right until you reach the trail near the summit of Flagstone.
