Description 

I felt like this was a better route than Egg Face (5.9) to the right. There was an interesting move after the first bolt and then the crux is probably after the second bolt.

Location 

On the East face of the Egg one route to the left of Egg Face. You can either rappel down or on the far left side of the East face you can scramble up or down on easy 5th class terrain.

Protection 

2 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor. The bolt on the right at the anchors is an old looking bolt that is attached to a rusty quicklink by old cord. The bolt on the left is solid.

There is a very nice 5.8ish route on the east side (to the left of Egg Face) that is protected by two bolts to a one-bolt anchor. Not mentioned in the Tresa Black book or here. Also in the middle there is a single bolt to what looks like was a single bolt anchor. Getting to the anchor is quite run out and the only way to clip to the anchor is by using one of the two small slings left at it, so did not attempt.
