From the 2150 Wall, walk east across a drainage, then continue east along the south-facing wall. This (and nearby routes) lie in an alcove on the corner where the wall turns up the drainage separating the Vault from Cactus Cliff (about 100' left of "Illusions"). Climb the arete forming the left edge of the left wall of the alcove. Clip the last bolt on "Breakfast in Bhopal" with a long sling and finish on the same anchors.
Four bolts, one long sling to rap anchors (shared with "Breakfast in Bhopal".

Van Horn's latest edition rates this as 10c. Earns a bomb for: contrivance (easily accessed ledge provides off route rest), bad rock on upper 3rd and cramming (shares upper 3rd w/ Breakfast in Bhopal). On the plus side, it's away from the crowds. A bomb might be a little harsh, but three stars is simply absurd, even by Shelf Road standards.
