BETA PHOTO: This is where I thought the route went. I finished...
P1: Climb the left-facing dihedral up some easy moves into a short offwidth. Just before the top of the pillar make face moves left, using a bolt for protection, until you can gain a nice finger/hand crack. Move up the crack to a nice ledge and gain a great double hand crack. Climb the cracks to another nice ledge and Belay.
P2: Exit the belay stance using finger/layback moves. Then continue to the top with easier class 5.
Start about 30 feet right of the Renaissance roof at a left-facing dihedral formed by a large, detached pillar. There is a single bolt visible from below.
Standard trad rack: small pieces to large hand sized pieces. Plus one bolt. One #4 Camalot or equivalent for short offwidth section.

I got to the top in 1 pitch with a 60m rope and rap'd off a tree.
