Start near the base of the shady tree, up to the sub-optimal first bolt, to some friction moves then up the easy face above.  You can see the clean pathway through the moss.  Climb the nice easy slab above a small flake at the start.  Tricky thin flaring crack climbing leads to widely spaced bolts up an easy slab.  Dirty, flaring, tricky pro, insects, but easy...  This thing is never going to be on anyone's "best of" list.  But you'll never have to wait in line for it.  HMR-6 goes up the low angled arete, through the steeper rock above then up an easy slab to Mussy hook anchors.
