From left, third bolted climb. Climb a delicate slab (3 bolts) passing to the right of the pine tree edge (bolt) and continuing up to a small overhang. Pull over the overhang (bolt) and climb the face above (2 bolts) to the top.

This is the bolt line a few feet left of "The Flake". Crux seemed to be on the face above the overhang, although the opening moves were pretty thin too!

I would say this could be bumped to a 5.10. It is a solid 9+ regardless. Tricky moves over the roof and the finish is very thin. There is no anchor at the top of this route and two dead trees at the finish...bring a cordalette and expect a boat load of friction when belaying. I would almost recommend belaying your second from above and rapping off the fixed anchor 20' right.
