Traverse out left on the huge ledge as your feet get further and further away from you (would help to be tall for this part). After traversing all the way out to the prow, topout straight up the prow with a high foot and a big move to a positive crimper (crux) and then top-out carefully. This is an excellent boulder problem.
Pad and Spotters so you don't fall down the hill.
Start where the leftmost overhang fully meets the wall (about 20ft from the left end of the cliff band). Traverse left and topout at the prow of the overhang.
