The crux on this route is actually about endurance and clipping the last bolt. The climb is obvious and straight forward...climb the double arete to the top. The project was initially named the "Double Arete". Subsequently, it was named "Juicer" because of another obvious reason...you must squeeze the piss outta the block in order to get to the top. The climber responsible for bolting the line and sending the FA, Bill Griffith, and his partner, Dave Buzzelli, completed the climb back to back and would like to name the FA Dopamine.
This climb is located at the Dihedrals and is the obvious refrigerator block to the right of the prominent black arete and beautiful dihedral.
The climb is protected with 4 bolts placed around 2004. The highest bolt was actually slightly misplaced, making for a difficult last clip. The climb has TR anchors.

Don't take this the wrong way but how can a 30 ft. route be about endurance?
