Start just left of a bushed crack-like feature on juggy, bulbous holds. Some gear might calm the nerves if this is at your limit. Note, there is a good-sized flake just down and right of the 1st bolt in the crack-like feature. It didn't come out easily when we checked, but don't rely on it without some protection in or the bolt clipped. Continue up on fun holds to the overlap. Shorter climbers may be stretched to pull over. Play on the face to the left until you get the last bolt clipped. Then stay calm to get the last bit figured out on suddenly much smaller holds to get the top.
