The crux is at the midpoint where it flares out. Solid hand, finger, fist jams as you go up. This climb is just out of reach of bouldering, unless your really good/crazy, and a little to short to lead. I would top rope.
you cannot miss it. Walk across the bridge to descend.
Fingers to #2-3

Sweet little crack. We just bouldered it, but it does blur the line between highballing and soloing, so if you're not comfortable soloing 5.9ish crack of all sizes, you might consider a TR. Be wary of the flakes in the pod, they are mostly solid, especially the biggest one, but the smaller ones do move a bit so don't reef on em. Crux is getting established in the pod, top out is easy on locker jams and full hand edges/shelf.
