Start has a few options: either head straight up the overhang on jugs with a little runout, start as for Staircase, or use the bolts for Oh No! which is the line to the left. Climb over the roof through the weakness on the left side. A high foot and big pull are the crux of the route. Cruise through horizontal cracks and pockets on a steep slab, heading straight up to the anchors. If ever you feel like the holds are too small, there is probably a bomber hold you're missing.

Way easy for 5.8, more like a 5.6. The crux for most is pulling through the first little roof to gain the face, but horns and jugs are aplenty.
