Right of the block is a vectorial line that crosses an overlap right off the ground, this is Death of a Sailsman. Continuous, slightly spooky climbing leads to the cruxy roof section just below the anchor. Hard to believe that Ruckman gave it only two stars. Continuous, tricky, vectorial climbing on great stone add up to a classic AF "a".
Seven or eight draws and a rope.
Ethan about to run out of intuition on his onsight...

Be prepared to climb between bolts. They are spaced!

The bolts do have some space between them, but they are placed where you want them. The furthest run out is above the last bolt getting to the anchors. The last bolt is probably 10 feet below your feet when clipping the anchors. I think the crux is just below that last clip.
