Take the crack just left of "Atlantean-a-Go-Go," which seams out and flares in sections aiming for the small roof before launching out on a 35' face with a horizontal crack splitting it in two spots for gear. Consider doubling up your gear before you climb the face plates & knobs. Good stuff. (And the rap station is right there, making the descent quick.)

Protection 

A rack of singles to 4" and a few extra finger pieces for the horizontal crack before the face. (Tri-cams will work, too.) Slot a #3 in the second horizontal near the top and finish straight up.

RAPPELLING NOTE:
Once you're down, make sure to pull rope from left of the route. There's a semi-notorious crack that gobbles ropes up there if you pull straight down...
