Bring small stoppers for a flake just past the fourth bolt. Good climbing on excellent rock.
The move over the overhang was 12- until a very loose block came off leaving a large incut bucket.
Five clips plus some small stoppers will get you to the anchor.

The move turning the overhang at the second bolt is the crux. I did a dyno to the good incut edge above the bolt, and I'm 6'1". Shorter climbers may find this move more like 11a or 11b.
Above, steep but moderate (8 to 9) climbing leads to the anchor.
