BETA PHOTO: Looking up at the crux of Shoes for Industry.
Easy low-5th-class climbing to the roof. Make one well-protected ~5.8(+?) move to get up and over, and then it's uneventful 5.6 with good gear to the top.
It's kind of a letdown after the roof, and therefore probably not worth the anchor/downclimb hassle.
From the base of Cave Woman
, walk left 50' through some bushes and start under the small roof. Descent: go up and over into the gully, same descent as Cave Woman.
Tips/finger-size gear for the crux. Std. rack to BD #1 or #2 for the rest. Big gear (BD #3, #4, big hexes/nuts) and some webbing is sufficient for an anchor at the top.

Gary Clark suggests: "Stay left in the upper part to keep the climb interesting."

Crux roof can be bypassed left, keeping the climb ~5.6.

There is now a bolted rap station that is very easy to find near the top of the climb. One 60 meter rope rap works but be sure to hang it by the middle. The bolted rap anchor is before the 6" juniper that has been used for rapping.
