Two starts (left one might be 5.7; right maybe 5.6); Righthand start is 20' left of Frogger and follows obvious white protuding dike. Left is just straight up. Either way, climb to vertical section in darker rock (crux).

Protection 

Trad rack (extra 1-2"?)
One bolt at top for anchor (supplement with cams/nuts)

Worthwhile, with a series of interesting layaway moves at the crux where reasonable holds and gear keep turning up. UK grade HVS 5a.

Wrap the rope round a huge boulder at the top for a very solid belay.
