|Not sure anymore. I belief it is on the slab west of this central slab. I have climbed the slab but not the head wall.|

No more spicey than other routes in this area, Bradley's description isn't too far off: just right of A Bit Short, follow bolts through a white streak and expext to simul climb after the first pitch. Head toward 1 o'clock and an aesthetic head wall. The 10a version is extremy soft.. felt 5.8+ to me tops (leading in approach shoes). The 10d appears to check in at the 10 grade, but probably toward the easier end of the spectrum. If climbing the 8+ variation, stop at a bolt just after the headwall. Belay and rap from here (I left a biner), otherwise you'll be slaughtered with rope drag and poor communication with your second. The harder variation leads to trees.
Decent is easiest via a new (as of yet undocumented) route straight down, bring 2 60 meter ropes.
Overall, good situational climbing on bullet, glacial polished slab.
