The crux is just below the ledge at 1/2 height.
Great climbing on sharp edges (very small to big) in the first half and great slab climb in the second half. FUN!
This climbs ascends the face to the right of the route "Innocence". Start far right on edges and crimps to gain a good horizontal then move left across the face until established under a neat little right facing corner. Pull edges straight up from here (crux) to gain a ledge and rest. Ascend the great slab climbing above staying for the most part in the middle and not using features off to either side. Fun Slab moves with great mantle technique needed to make it all look good.
It is a somewhat sketchy lead but is a lead. Take small to medium cams for the horizontals and then RPs and Ball Buts for the incipient cracks in between. The first 15 feet are un-protected unless the climber utilizes side gear! The upper slab has great pro in horizontals but it will always be at your feet for the hard moves.
