This is a nice lead; the meandering aspects make it more interesting than the typical straight-up route. Two hints that will make life easier:
1. Sling your pro well, or the rope drag will be unbearable. Bring at least a couple of double-length slings.
2. Take enough webbing or the like to extend the anchor over the edge of the cliff, or you're likely to really trash your rope.
