Bucketed face on high block, right of 2nd Pitch of Chicken Mechanics. Follow the 3 quarter inch rusty scraps. Near the top, go straight up for the crux finish, or veer right to finish up an easy crack. Optional finish after the first pitch of Chicken Mechanics. There's also a really easy crack to the right of this bucketed face, more inward on the big ledge.

Descent Options:

Downscramble to climber's right. Or scramble to summit backside and downclimb couple of squeeze chimneys to get to the big ledge above Blackjack's rap anchor. Can set gear anchor there and downclimb 2-3 moves down to that rap anchor.
