Per the guide book "Rock Climbing Southwest Oregon" (which, IMO, is a lot better than the parking lot sign that has more than a few errors on it), three variants for this climb can net you 5.10a, 5.11a, or 5.12a.
The route is located immediately left of the main chimney, also left of the large poured concrete block.
The route is super simple until about 10 feet up, then the challenge starts.
This face climb offers small friction bumps for footholds, right-hand stays fairly dedicated to a side pull on the edge of the column. The difference in grades depends largely upon left-hand placement. 10a grade allows the use of the left crack. Using both edges of the column (no crack) gets you 5.11a. Using only one edge or the other for hands pushes it up to 5.12a.
