Nice topo photo! The set of anchors in the dihedral (2nd from top in the photo) are old and rusty, but a gear anchor can be easily built in the corner. We bypassed the traverse and off-width by going straight up. The climbing stays sustained, but the rock gets poor and there is some loose scrambling at the top to get over to the anchors. I don't really recommend it. The left variation to the first pitch is really fun too. One can traverse left under the roof through some hard moves and into the left-facing corner. There are two bolts for Tooth Decay leading into the corner, but I would not trust them. They need to be replaced because the climbing is fun, hard slab.
