This route climbs an insignificant little crack system left of Night Grooves. It isn't very good and is kind of dangerous. I felt like climbing it though after doing all of the other routes in this spot so many times.
Begin left of Night Grooves on easy terrain. Staying left, clip long runners to the 2nd and 3rd bolts on Night Grooves or opt to place a very poor yellow Mastercam at your feet around where the fun begins. After veering left of the 3rd bolt on Night Grooves, head straight up thin lichen seams for quite a healthy runout. Just before making the last moves, it is possible to get a small, DMM, offset, brass nut in and keep it oriented with a 0 Mastercam. If you fell and this small wire blew, you will likely hit the ledge 40 feet below. Avoid this route if you are not comfortable doing easy but dicey moves on suspect gear.
Belay at a tree at the top of the route.
This is just left of Night Grooves on low angle slabs and thin cracks.
2 bolts, yellow and 0 Mastercams, and a #6 DMM offset brass nut.
