Start off on an awkward move to get feet up and stable enough to access a jam that started out of reach to the right. You'll likely be barndooring off of some awkward-looking sidepulls to get there, but the rock is so course and sharp that the hands and feet stick like glue.
Toss in that jam and start a series of liebacks and jams up very steep rock, alternating between slots and shallow, left-facing corners in a singular line. You will reach a gravel-covered shelf after 60'. Looking up a right-facing corner and overhang (with massive pockets on the side), you can see a rope anchor that constitutes a belay and rap.
This is a pitch worth finding if you are coming off of the back of the West Ironing Board.
Go North, down to a ledge, and then back south on that gravely ledge to locate the climb and the anchor, which will now be under an overhang just above your head.
The anchor needs a rapid-link, as it presently sports no hardware.
