Begin in a corner formed by a thin chimney. Utilize chimney technique or jam your way up the dihedral past a polished slab to more comfortable jams and stemming stances as you move up.

Corner between New Yosemite
and Junk Yard Dog.

Protection 

Cams to #3. Hexes and large nuts are very useful as well. Bolted anchor.

Stayed surprisingly dry after a rain the previous night and day. Short but fun.

Chimney climbing is new to me but it felt very solid. The crux is exiting the chimney on the polished face but you can protect it very well. Safe climb since you follow the crack all the way to the top. You can place as much gear as you want. Not sure why people are saying Pg-13 or R when a placement is always available. The anchor is very accessible from the top and only a couple minute hike from the base of the route. If you're unsure just tr it first.
