On the left side of the tall overhanging face, climb thin moves up the left facing corner formed by the giant flake to reach a horizontal rail. Move right and up, making a committing move that is hard to reverse and continue up to the scary mantle finish. Ward beat me to the bouldering FA by 3 minutes when I down climbed to brush the top-out off (grr) You will want to make sure it is clean when you go for it too.

Straight up the face from the jug to the same top-out remains one of LW's quality undone projects.
