Take the left-leaning ramp with a hand crack to the somewhat awkward flaring chimney with a thin finger crack (crux). Pull a small roof to finish. Good pro the whole way.

Thin to 3", slings
No fixed gear/anchors.

Fun moderate, and a good link up with "at your pleasure".
Start on a low angle hand crack ramp with positive jams which increases in steepness; then get all up into the chimney. Some of the most fun I've had in a chimney due to the featured nature of both faces, it allows you to get pretty creative and make some really wild moves.

Approach notes:
To the climbers left of the huge boulder from perfect fingers.
The new Miramontes book says you climb the left side of the flake but it is the right side of a left leaning flake.

A nice warm-up for Perfect Fingers. Pretty fun and well protected. The crux in the chimney required some thoughtful stemming and smearing. Overall a much better route than I was expecting.
