At the anchors on Conquistador.

Description 

Climbs the blank looking far right face of the main wall. Pull up through underclings and sparse feet to the first bolt, then crimp up to another undercling. Work the crimps to the right of the prominant flake to the last bolt, then traverse left into the flake. A few moves and the chains are yours.


Protection 

Four bolts to chains.

Fun route- really keeps coming at you from the start. If this route is at your limit, though, it would be wise to stick clip the first bolt as the consequences of a fall would be very high.

Will agree with the stick clip comment, but fun bouldery moves are over too quickly but worth the effort.

Big loose block at the start that's gonna ruin someone's day down the road. I don't use a stick clip much, but I'd say that if 10d is your limit, it'd be a really smart idea. Upper flake has fun climbing but is also pretty hollow-might be a good idea to have belayer anchored out of harm's way in case anything comes down unexpectedly. That said-interesting and techy.
