Protection 

For the first section, a few small/medium nuts and a single set of TCUs or similar. You might want an extra finger-sized piece to protect the moves through the overhang to the first bolt.
From there, 7 bolts to anchor.

Description 

Very good, sustained face climbing once you are into the bolts. Did I mention it's sustained?

1.) Climb an easy flake/groove off the deck to a small overhang 15' up. Bomber finger-sized gear protects the balancy moves to the first bolt. From here, things get tough. Work up and left on thin terrain past the first two bolts on tiny feet and sidepulls. Have shoes with good edging.

Not sure of the difficulty of the climbing past the first couple bolts, I'll let you know when I get there. A few people have said that something may have broken recently, but it's more likely that we're all just weaker than Jerry. 80', 5.12b

It is possible to continue above past a few pins into the headwall crack for a mega pitch.
