According to Kozak's Southwest Rock, this route used to be called Pseudo-Cenotaph.

Before that, it was called Bush and Dirt Crack.

There is a block about 12' up that is getting loose. I saw a chalk X on it, but it is lower from the X as well. It's big.

The second pitch is worth doing, if only once. I enjoyed the climbing there much more than on the first pitch, but it's just so short it's hardly worth the time. There are indeed anchors atop the second pitch and a 60m rope gets you to the ground -but just BARELY- Be sure you're middle is marked correctly! :)

The left (direct) start is also sweet and avoids the softer rock on the right.
