Start at the base of the flake all the way to the left where the beach meets the hillside. Follow the flake up and to the right until it ends. The crux is the last move on the flake, maybe 5.8. Then traverse right for a few feet and follow the regular Left Route up to the two anchor bolts below the big ledge just below the top. Then traverse right on friction and crimps just below the ledge until you are underneath the toprope anchor. Then up and over the ledge to the top!
5.9 variation: instead of traversing right after the flake head straight up until you hit the ledge. This way doesn't see much traffic and is a little mossy and/or sandy.
On the far left of the beach side cliff.
Top rope above the Center/Left Routes. If you want you can run it through the anchor bolts above the Left route to reduce the pendulum if you fall, but it's not really that bad because of the positive slope of the cliff--if you do fall off it's pretty easy to stop yourself from swinging.
