Gear to about 2 inches.
As usual, the crux is at the start. It protects well. Just beyond, there is an ancient piton left of the corner. From there, the climbing is fairly easy although the best holds will not be obvious. There are also 1 - 2 strategic horizontal seams for gear that are hard to spot from the ground.
Hard to set a nice TR on this one: sling the block or use a good horizontal 4 feet down. Either way, a TR kind of cheats the climber of the last satisfying move.
