Kind of a forced line to the left of the Rapture. Edges, high steps, and arete climbing on a slightly steeper face than the Rapture. Worth doing if you are there.
Around the arete left of the Rapture.
6 + two silly bolts on the belay ledge + anchors. There are so many bolts strewn around this ledge.

If you know the name or the FA party please leave a comment.
Also, I graded it 5.8+ b/c it was a tiny bit harder than the Rapture, but I think both are quite soft.
Edit: I edited the info above to reflect the accurate bolt count.

I've led this and also thought it to be on par with The Rapture in difficulty, 5.8ish. Not sure on the name or FA.

I led this over the weekend and enjoyed the climb. It was a nice surprise to see how protected the route was. It has about 5-6 bolts to the anchors at the top of The Rapture and has a nice crux at a roof.
I would rate this a solid 5.8+ although it is a bit more scary to climb than The Rapture.

Less aesthetic than The Rapture but the moves are more fun and thought-provoking, and no harder (in my opinion).
