upper portion of crack is clean, the lower portion below the 1 st bolt, there is some salad growing out of it down low.

The crux seemed to be climbing the arete between the mossy cracks below the first bolt. or climb through the vegetation. Otherwise the crack is good and takes gear well. The 2nd crux is to move out left at the second bolt when the crack ends. Can also go right but it's a long reach to clip bolt. Finish with the slanting OW hence #4 or just go for it!!
