Description 

This is actually pretty difficult. Head up the left side of the bolt line and feel free to use the arete because it's hard enough. Keep your body on the same side as the bolts though. I didn't see any other way to do it than making use of a mortar pinch and a mono undercling in the crux, which is before the second bolt. If you don't like falling above the first bolt, you may enjoy it more if you just top-rope it after leading Ice Dreams, which is a better climb.

Location 

Follow the trail down to the 2nd Trestle and go to the right, narrow side facing you.

Protection 

5 bolts to bolt anchor

Plus, the run-out between the 2nd and 3rd bolt would be more tolerable on Ice Dreams.
