There are two options to finish this climb. Right of the fig tree or continue up left of the tree through dirty rock past one carrot and possibly two rings. The left option is rarely climbed.

23 *** No More Mr Nice Guy Sport 35m, 12

Takes the left line up this gently overhanging wall. Recently rebolted to the first anchor with Powers PFpro and Bolt-Products twisted rings, the climbing past this anchor is not worth the effort.
