The guides get a bit confusing on which is which in this area, so I'm taking a guess. Based on the length this one should continue on and up to the right linking with a route called Proper Training is Essential (5.11+), making for a rope stretching pitch at solid 5.12.

The lower section starts off on the left of two broken crack systems, climbing up crimps and sidepulls and then pulling over a bulge into a large almost completely blank face. Welcome to cruxville. It's only a few moves, but it's super thin and reachy. After that you can traverse right to the Angels and Dæmons anchor, or continue up another 15 meters or so.

For the lower part you only need 4 or 5 draws.
