Slab climbing to a lone bolt. Clip it and make the crux move of getting to the large flake. Follow the flake up and right placing finger to hand sized gear. Make an anchor on the tree at the summit. Not as hard as it looks from the ground, this is a great route. Bring a 60 meter rope, you'll use most of it.
Follow the base trail until you reach the tallest face on the wall. The large flake above will be very obvious to spot.

Bring .5-2 Camalots and some larger nuts. One bolt on the climb. Bring your own webbing to lower from the trees at the top.

I found the pro to be a little bit tricky in places. Furthermore, the large exfoliation flake on the right is completely hollow. Time bomb. Once you hit the bolt, the pro issues end. The namesake flake is very solid.

Fantastic climb. Doesn't seem quite like a 5.8, maybe 5.7+ at the crux between the bolt and the flake, but the crux is relatively short. Hold and feet are all good, just need a little balance!
And definitely watch the large hollow rock to the right most of the distance below the bolt.
