βeta: I liked this direct route up the face, although you really need to ab down to check/clean holds which can get filled up with dross from the tree above. The way I did it was the direct start, then lean left from the ledge to fit side-runners in Charas (quite awkward and scary); this is probably the most fun and ethical way of doing it (other than solo, of course).
