This is a difficult climb to describe in detail, as the line is indefinite and might climb almost anywhere on the face. The line you take will vary and be mostly be determined by finding the cleanest and driest rock rather than by what looks best at first. A few trees and cracks near said trees offer the best potential belays if you are roped up.
Find the cleanest most singular path starting from the low end of the east face and head up the rock to the summit.
I dunno, really a light rack I guess. My only shot on this was a free solo downclimb from the top to the base on my way home from the Hippo Head.

This face looks nice but is looser than your average Flatiron east face. Must have been scary to downclimb free solo, it was scary going up!
