Begin to the right of the mini-buttress below the hanging block.

Excellent pitch. If you follow the cracks on the left side of the lower slab, which seems like the natural line, the difficulty seems more like 5.5-5.6.

I chose to stay in the center at the bottom adequate protection, Fun with an easy improbable traverse above overhang.
