Description 

This is a short, reach-dependent, leftward traverse under a roof. It is fingers size.

Location 

From the anchors atop the 5.11 crack, continue the lead out, and under the obvious roof. Protect the second and belay at Upper Fall Wall Route anchors. Choose a second pitch from there.

Protection 

#0.5 Camalot; half driven Lost Arrow; small, medium cams to protect second (important).

The route is a really a boulder problem but with really fun position. Even given it is a one-move wonder, I think it is fairly hard 5.11, but I am also fairly short.

Also, it is a good idea to back up the pin with a small cam. You'll be in for a spectacular, bouncing tumble if you fall and the pin pulls. And as stated in the description, be kind to your second: reach back and place some a small cam after pulling the crux.
