This enjoyable dike is has been described and being "like climbing the vertebrae of some long-dead animal." After a short third class scramble to the base of this dike you basically follow it up fun climbing past two bolts until you exit to a crack on the left. The bolts are pretty far apart but the climbing between them is positive and straightforward.
It's the first climb as you descend along the bast on the west. Just past a knob covered face and a crack the "spine" cuts through some empty slab. Climb half a pitch of blocks to attain the start.
A couple draws and half a dozen cams from 0.5-1.5" for the top of the dike, anchor, and short second pitch off.
