This is essentially Funny Face Direct. The idea is to get into a depression by using a mantle move, which is the crux, can be protected by placing a cam high in the crack to the right. Thin face then leads to the first bolt on Funny Face...


The right-hand pillar.


Cam (up high & right), 2 bolts, bolted anchor

This starts directly below the first bolt of funny face. I also started it same as Noondance, under cling under the small roof and then moving up on right to a shallow pocket, fun this way and easier than 11c.
