The route climbs the low corner, or alternatively the blocky face to the left to a crack in the slabby face to a comfy bay with bolted anchors.

Added some topo lines to clarify as there is some mild misinformation floating around on this route:

Yellow - first pitch with starting options. Crux is in the middle where the vertical crack momentarily steepens. Bolted belay.

Blue - Second pitch - Up the easy (5.1?) face above, with gear in the corner or horizontals when you want it. Bolted Belay.

Magenta - Single Rope Rappel Route - You need to push hard to the right to get to the ledge on the first rappel. Do not let go of the ropes when you get there or they will swing away. For the second rappel, head left, a 60m will just reach the raised platform below - be prepared to go to the very end of you rope and maybe downclimb 3 or 4 feet.
