Climb up the garbage starting in corner until you get to the ledge. Step a little left to enter he 1st move off the ledge, a fun mono that can be safe but have your belayer on guard if it feels too hard. Clip from a somewhat crumbly tufa. The rest is spectacular movement on stellar rock, well worth getting past the garbage start.
There are many new routes here that have a crowded but separate start - start this one just left of 'pirates' in the mini dihedral.

I agree with the description. This route was way better than I expected. The 30' of amazing climbing on the tufa is worth the crap start. It's technical, and the pump sneaks up on you.
