Deb starts into the first crux.
This is a trad line just right of Off Line that follows a crack past two bulges. It has been referenced as a variation of Off Line, but it has climbed since before there were bolts on this section of the cliff.
Move up a short bit of wide crack to a bulge (crux). Stay right of the arete and keep your feet out until you can reach the finger crack over its top. Pull over into the cramped alcove. Work the hand crack on the right with feet on the left. Move up the crack/dihedral. Note, there is a stretch of perhaps 10 feet where you will be unable to get in protection. Finish up the crack to the top. Move right and down to clip the anchors for easy descent. In the old days, you would walk off.
This starts right of Off Line and left of Hippy School, and it finishes to the left of Off Line.
Cams green Alien to #4 Camalot. If you are insecure at the 1st bulge, you can clip the bolt with a 24" sling to the left.
