I led this yesterday and really enjoyed it. It's a nice hand crack albeit too short. I placed a couple of yellow camalots for protection. From the anchors I toproped Garden Party and Cornered.

Fun route. The bottom offers great jams and stemming but is painfully short.
Rather than using the chains on the left, skip them and work your way out right towards the prominent prow (use long slings). The rock is good (enough) and you can get great pro in either the slanting or horizontal cracks before pulling an airy and fun roof. Then belay from tree maybe 20' back from the roof. This extension makes this route much better.
