This route starts off the left side of a boulder/ledge at the base of the wall, and climbs the nice face between "Jugular Vein" and "Do or Dike".
The first lead went straight up to the second bolt. Now it is led to the left.
A line of holds goes up excellent grey rock to a fairly new looking bolt. Move up and right to another bolt. Steep climbing up freckled rock passes two more bolts. The crux is after the last bolt.

There is a two bolt anchor on top.

There is a mystery bolt in the middle of three hairline dikes, down and left of the start.

One-move thin crux leads to long and steep 5.10 jug haul.

It's a little exposed getting to the anchors if TR-ing - I wouldn't recommend leading it on those rusty Leeper hangers.
