This is known as Hang On in Sven's guide but I think it starts a bit more left than the line in the pic.

This is a GREAT route! Climbs sporty with big holds and a big overhang including a nice throw to the jug.

I led it with a #1 ball-nut under the roof and a blindly placed white tri-cam (smallest) just over the roof. A green C3 might also have fit but it was harder to place blindly.
