Climb the first part of "Hard-up" until you reach the high left anchor with webbing hanging on it. From there, follow a pair of diagonal cracks up the face know as the "Sign Route". In the middle of the face, there is a large chunk gone visible from the ground. Here, place a few pieces and run it out straight up the face over a bulge. You'll make several tough moves and then move up 5.6 to 5.7ish terrain passing a horizontal crack that takes gear and ending up on a ledge with a small tree with a crack behind it. From here, the climbing isn't so great, but not difficult to finish if you can find a line with decent pro.
