He's figured out the move, now he just has to pump...
Loch Ness Monster is west of Pentapitch, and consists of an edgy slab and a bouldery roof. Figuring out the sequence is half the problem. If a top-rope is desired, the crack system to the left can be climbed or scrambled up, depending on your comfort level.
2 draws are required for this climb, along with 2 more for the chain anchors. Possibly a piece before and after the bolts. Bring a runner for the lower piece.

Lead this one again today, and the sequence, which the book isn't accurate about, defintely works right on the undercling above the roof. Still a tough little route.

Not sure it's worth the effort. Good if you need one more burn after rappelling the buttress, but beyond that, there's not much.
