Aside from the first large crack and a second, less sloped one about 7ft after it, there are mostly scattered crimps.
Be careful not to go into the dihedral on the left or the obvious crack on the right. There is a quartzite knob on the left, near the crux, that is part of the dihedral route, not part of this route.
In the "Climber's Guide to Devil's Lake" book it is right in-between an unnamed 5.9 route that moves up a dihedral (marked as #22 for the area) and 2 unnamed 5.7/5.8 crack climbs (marked as #23-24 for the area). If you don't have this guide it is about 5-7ft left of Ptooey.
It can be topped out and you can walk back down or you can rappel back down as well.
TRing is an option too. There's plenty of spots to place an anchor at the top, like trees, so you could top out and walk back down or rappel back down too.
