Climb the relatively easy face and crack to the overhang, clip the first bolt of the overhang, and then wonder what in the world you are supposed to do next. In fact, I don't think I've ever seen a route with such an easy start for such a difficult finish. These are probably the hardest moves at the crag, but, again, it's only the last 5 feet of the route.

We tried many times to go up the face on the over hang. The sloppers were just to bad. We ended up all finishing it by going to the left toward the top. Hope to hear back if someone makes it straight up that overhang.

I climbed this route directly up the face, avoiding the crack/big flake/dihedral to the right and crack to the left. It's pretty thin with this start, and more consistent difficulty with the finish. The overhang can definitely be climbed directly, with a key foot jam helpful to reach the higher, less slopey holds. Done this way, I think it is ~.11a

I climbed up the face of the crux using a dyno. If you get high enough you can really stick the deeper slope holds up there and just hang on. You're not home free once you hit it though! Scrambling up over the face is awkward, and I had to quit right at the anchor because I was so pumped from practicing the dyno.
