Climb over a small bulge to an overhanging crack. You'll need to stem a lot and make sure to place good gear before tackling the overhang because it doesn't let up too much after that. It is more difficult and awkward than it looks. Climb up and right on good ledges/edges but it is very run out till you get to the two bolts before the anchor. The guide book I have says it's 5.9 but it says, "probably hard for it's grade".
Owl Rock - West
You need two small cams before the roof and some large stoppers up high above the roof. Bolts are up and to the right (shares anchors with Snack Break Direct & Snack Break).

rating: 5.9 5c 17 VI HVS 5a PG13
The "PG13" rating refers to the 25 or so feet from your last piece of trad gear to the next bolt.
The boulder start requires fine footwork, but a good stance can be made about 15' up to place a Black Alien (or equivalent) into the overhanging crack, followed shortly thereafter by a series of nut and cam options. Height helps. This would be difficult/committing for shorter individuals.
