Jam up the crack, past a shallow roof and out through the arrowhead. Follow the crack up to a ledge, and face climb the rest of the way.
There are several trees at the top of the cliff that can make for a good anchor, but bring lots of webbing or static line because they're set back 20'+.

with a bolt or two on the upper face, this route could be classic. nasty but fun offwidth to a good crack then to a cruxy face that takes you to the top of the block where after stepping over the 4' gap you get another 10' of good crack climbing to the trees.

Warning: There's a boulder with a nasty pointed edge at the base of the climb. If/when you pop off the opening moves without a real tight belay, you'll get it in the back. Ask someone to spot you or have your belayer sit on the point until you clear the off-width.
