Start on a left leaning ramp between "Chucka" and "Shrimpy" climb about half way up this ramp until it's possible to step out right into a large dish with a positive hueco for hands, wander following the lowest angel rock to a two bolt ancher. On-sight freesolo FFA.

Ancher bolts for top-rope or a mellow solo

well, if you look at the line in the picture it seems to be a contrived direct line below a bolted anchor. while the line I put up wonders following a natural path of least resistance threw a set of ramps and brakes left at the top.
Ps: since when does a set of bolts and a top-rope send constitute a FFA any way?

Considering the whole crag was set up for TR'ing with the exception of 2 routes, does anyone that goes and "frees" the other TR's get to rename them? Seems ludicrous to me, especially since these routes are barely worth climbing in the first place. I'd personally rather not see this route have a name, let alone 2.
If you want examples of TR FA's, I'd take a look at the Joshua Tree Guidebook. Plenty of FA credit in there by some big names for TR FA's.

It's an easy, well protected trad lead. Definitely easier than the two bolted climbs to the left, with only one tricky 5.6ish move--the traverse from the crack right to the dish.
