This is a short climb up broken/loose flakes with poor gear and uneven groundfall potential from the crux. The Haas book gives this a star, but I do not know why. The route is rated 5.8 as well, but it felt difficult to get feet into for that grade at my height and must be far harder for short folks.
Almond Joy climbs a left facing system of semi-detached flakes rising upward from a bulge at the ground a few feet East of the Southeast most point of the rock. After 25', it hits a ledge and moves slightly right out on a face and to the top.
Mostly cams behind semi-detached flakes. The route was probably initially soloed, which might be why this was not noted in detail. Gear up top can be challenging to get as well.
