This is probably my favorite climb in the Valley. The climbing is varied, sustained, and very pumpy. Start by liebacking up a large detached flake. Get your feet on top of the flake and you'll be staring down a finger crack. Lieback this, it's easier than it looks. You then traverse left through the cave looking section. There's huge hand holds here but nothing for the feet. Move up to the overhanging handcrack and enjoy the workout. Be careful up top as there is some loose rocks.

This is a great route. Very short but is packed with challenges. If you can't make a decent handjam - forget it, you will be flailing on this route.
