Required a major clean on abseil given the vegetation on the two main ledges I'd say this was the first ascent in quite a while. Now restored to its former glory, a classic quarry route and well worth seeking out. The crux start(5c?) could be high ball to gain the much easier climbing above (no gear till past crux, but climbing is on good positive crimps). Tried moves on abseil after cleaning before soloing. Didn't have a nut key to clean out some of the cracks fully. Also removed a loose and dangerous block just to the right of the finish on the next climb.
