Description 

There are four cracks right next to each other on this rock. Catalyst is just right of "Far Left", making it the second crack from the left. Do some fun laybacking (slick feet), go on to handjams and/or face climbing. Very obvious line.

Protection 

Stoppers for the bottom (fingercrack), towards the top some slightly larger things (handcrack). TR also very possible, and easy to set.

Too short for 2 stars IMHO. Worth doing though if you're there.
