Surely this route has been done before, but I have not found any documentation. If it doesn't have a name, I am suggesting Battle of the Bulge (keeping with the whole combat theme). The route is pretty fun. Just when it looks like things are going to get hard, the perfect edge shows up.
Just to the left of Arkansas Patriot (last bolted route on the left of Combat) is a short, thin, left-angling seam with a great, hand-sized ear of rock. Head up that then angle to the right until you meet a small, left-leaning roof. Angle back to the left, following the small roof. Turn this roof at the apex then gain the right-facing dihedral above, which leads you to the anchors.
A single rope rap gets you down. You can easily top rope this from the bolts.
Standard rack. Small cams helpful. Bring some slings as the route wanders a bit. It ends at the same 2-bolt anchor as Arkansas Patriot.
