Start just left of Ol' 47. Follow a steep lieback crack on the left side of an arete past four bolts. At the fourth bolt one can either head straight up to the anchor, which is runout and about 5.10a on very sharp rock, or pull left to the fifth bolt on Ol' 47, then head back to the anchor, which is shared with Ol' 47.
Relative to the other routes in the area, this route is a bit runout.

Or pull "right" to the last bolt of Ol' 47. The fun moves in the initial lieback crack would be worth at least a star, but for the subsequent and unnecessary "do I run it out or clip a bolt from an adjacent line" choice (based on the chalk marks, most seem to have chosen the latter.

Whoops, meant to give this one-star. It's not that bad, but it seems like it could use another bolt.

When I bolted "Amiga" I intended for folks to climb up right to the last bolt on "Ol'47" simply because I seemed silly to place a bolt for the direct finish that was so close to that other bolt. I say run-it-out or go right...

The first 25ft. are fun then it switches to standard pocket pullin'.

Fun toprope for moderate climbers after leading Ol'47 (or its easier 5.7 crack variation).

Aside from maybe Cobra, the upper third has some of the sharpest rock at Shelf.

What a fun route! A bit runout in one section but definitely manageable. Awesome kneebar to clip from!
