Double ropes are well advised. Head up Herbarium corner, traverse left across face and under a roof to a large inside corner and ramp system that leads up-right almost to the top. Out right from under next roof, then trend left over the bulge to gain the top of the cliff. The "5.8" moves on this climb are harder than some of the 5.9 at this location - maybe because of previous rockfall changing the route(?).
