Beef of the route starts on the big partially detached pillar (watch for loose rock and sediment).
To climb to the top of the pillar ledge. You can climb a much easier crack on the face. But you should man up and climb the offwidth on the left (#5 camalot fits like a glove).
Crux is at a small bulge with a long left move to a crimp, then some tomfoolery to the next edge. Stay tight. Ticktack climbing to the top.
