Variety of interesting moves.
Mount the leaning flake, next up the face (arete is on) to a ledge. Next trend left a bit, and up on fun flakes to reach left-trending ridge, and along crest of ridge to meet the next route to the left.
warning: 60 meter rope is likely not long enough to lower off or rappel from top of this climb, if continue on another route to top of cliff. Re-check rope length and make sure to tie a knot in the other end of the rope so climber does not drop off before reaching the ground.
warning: The rock on and near this route has not been climbed much yet, and some of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber.
FA first ascent? The listing of a Top-Rope first ascent does not imply that top-roping is the "appropriate" style for this route. If some party bolts this route and leads it and supplies a careful description of the size and metal-composition of the bolts and hangers - (by posting an Improve This Page or a Comment below) -- they wlll be given first-rank FA on this page. Also they can supply their own name for this climb (which is why currently this route has a "generic" name, awaiting installation of hardware).
On face next to big right-facing corner with hole at bottom -- with detached leaning flake about five feet high and a foot wide.
No anchor hardware or intermediate bolts as of May 2017.
Top-Roping: Perhaps could use the big tree with three-foot-diameter trunk at the top of the cliff as anchor, together with some directional.
But using an anchor near the top of the cliff for Top-Roping in the usual way with belay from the bottom would be dangerous while climbing near the ground, because of the large amount of rope-stretch. So use a special "semi-static" rope with much less stretch than a normal dynamic climbing rope - (or perhaps the belayer could keep the climber under constant strong tension).
