Starts in a scooping dihedral and makes a few akward moves up, then traverse left on the crack to the jugs. The crux is getting around the arete. After you reach the jugs shake out, chalk up and climb up. It's easy but high.
Just after you cross the bridge leaving the parking lot, take the trail on your right. Take about 10 steps and look to the left, you can't miss it.

I know this gets a lot of stars in the guidebook. I just think there are a lot of much better problems at pway. The crux isn't really that fun, awkward left hand stab around a corner and the rock is pretty poor by pway standards. It is tall and aesthetic but that isn't enough for me.

Well, there are definitely better problems at Pawtuckaway. But, I think this climb is quite good. Aesthetic and just tall enough to keep it exciting!

I have heard of a direct start to this and it looks like Ladd is climbing it in the photo, anyone have any info on it?

There is a direct start. Stand start the arete with right hand on a sidepull crimp. It's more difficult and not as fun as the normal line but still worth a try.
