This is an obvious crack line just to the left of Friday The 13th. Can be one in one or two pitches. Climb the lower obvious crack (which becomes increasingly more difficult, up to say 5.7+) to a double bolt anchor under a roof. The crux is pulling out under the roof and onto the face. Jam the corner system to a short squeeze chimney and a ledge. From here either belay or continue left up a short unprotected 5.8 slab (kinda scary) and rappell from anchors above bolted face climb.

Fun climb, harder than it looks. The top out is definitely a little dicey, especially if you are leading at your limit.

I enjoyed this little crackline. My sister and I did this rather quickly and were able to clock-in Friday the 13th as well as many other small solos all in one day. I liked it though.
