The set of bolts located between the Mind Mantle Arete and the 69.5 Crack.

4 bolts plus anchors (Eds. one is loose and wiggles).

This is a fun route with very featured rock that is mostly 5.6 until one difficult move below the anchors.

Someone did a nice job putting up this route; it must have a name. I just noticed it for the first time today, so it must be pretty recent. Like Kevin Spies a Line nearby, this route is a good beginner lead.

There is a bee hive about 5 feet to the left of the second bolt, I've climbed it twice in the last 4 weeks with two different groups and nobody has been stung.

By the way, it was my first lead!
