Dihedral with an offwidth crack to the left and some smaller placements to the right. Easy 5.5ish climbing to the roof. Crux is just above roof topping out at the Metolius anchors.
About 20 feet right of 3 consecutive roofs. Look for the right facing, off-width crack.
Small nuts to a #4.
The white stuff isn't chalk.

I wish I had taken a 4" piece for the off-width, but fortunately there were ample placements in the dihedral crack on the right side. Fun moves pulling the roof and then topping out on crimpers and smeary feat.
Business end of the climb is topping out above the roof with really no viable pro placements. Definitely a thought provoking section, but once you find the holds, grab and go.

If you love bird shit this is your route! Wait 'til early spring when the winter washes it all off.
