Quality sustained face climbing at the bottom leads to a big move before the roof and an easy top out section. Continue to the top on excellent mid-11 face and slab, belay to make it 2 pitches, or descend from here. If linking into one pitch, back-cleaning or extending the 5th bolt (at the dynamic move before the roof) will greatly reduce rope drag. Probably a good idea to pull the rope and descend from the midway anchor if linking both pitches with a 60-meter rope.

Fun climbing on small holds leads to an interesting, committing crux. If you are under about 5'9" I think the crux move may be totally different. I think if I were under 5'9" I would not be able to do it. If you want to up your chance of failure then eat some chips before you climb.
