Gun Rack: Heading into the double roofs.
Gun Rack has a brilliant double roof sequence (especially for the grade), with mostly pedestrian climbing before and after. There's an optional second pitch of easy slabbing (5.6 or .7, crux at top). By skipping (or back cleaning) some of the first pitch bolts, it's reasonable to climb the entire route as one long pitch (two raps with a single rope).
Currently, last route to the left after reaching crag. Look for the double roof.
Draws. 6 bolts plus anchor (first pitch); 13 draws should be enough for combining pitches.

I combined pitches 1 and 2 without skipping or backcleaning; the rope drag was stiff for the last little bit, but doable. However, it was just about impossible to hear my second under the roof from the top of pitch 2.

Great climb, but not good on hot days.
