Paul in the middle of Happy Ending.
This is the third route in Greg Hand's comment on Centennial.
This is the second bolted route from the left on Lower Bowling Alley.
Climb past five bolts on the face between "Dry Run" and Father Figure to a ledge. 9-. Once on the ledge climb past two bolts with the crux getting to the anchors.
Fixe rap rings at the top.
Quickdraws. 7 [+2] bolts.

The broken off rusted piton up 20' is a good clue that at least the bottom 2/3 this route was probably done trad a long time before it was bolted. Trucker gear placements are available here and there without a X-rating.

This route is "Happy Ending", 5.10d, first ascent by Dan Hare and Johnny Adams, July 2002, according to Mark Rolofson's new guidebook "Boulder Canyon Sport and Adventure Climber's Guide Volume II - The Upper Canyon".
This is a fun route. There's a 9+ thin seam move past the third bolt, and a hard face move past the last bolt to the anchor. You can stem right off a block to make this last move easier.

For the last move, get your feet high enough and trust that right hand allowing you to reach a very solid hold to the lower left of the anchors. Short, but fun route.

The holds on the short, upper headwall reminded me of Soul Train, at Industrial Wall. It's too bad that the entire route isn't like the last ten feet.

Fun little warm-up, the start is the hardest part. After the 1st bolt, the rest is a breeze.

Led this today after Splitting Hares. Good confidence builder. Had to try that final crux move a couple of times before sending it. Glad the kid talked me into it.

I think Brain Damage has too much brain damage, the hardest part is at the crux. Hence it being the crux. Stay on the face with the anchor and you'll get a run for your money. Slightly pumpy with rest, then really pumpy at the crux, fun though and you'll feel accomplished if you send it.
The part before the first bolt is awkward, you might stick clip it or get a strong climber/boulderer to clip it for safety.
D'Antonio guide is wrong about the bolt count, it's 7 + 2.
