Pat warming up on Life in the Trough.
A decent warm-up climb in The Trough. Follow good holds up the face, trending right toward the shallow, left-trending arete/ramp system. There's no specific crux, though route-finding is a little funny; follow the path of least resistance, rather than trying to contrive a line straight through the bolts.
Life is the 6th line of bolts up the trough, Hyssop being the first - probably ~75 feet up from the road.
6 bolts, 2-bolt anchor with a couple 'biners; bring some webbing if you're so inclined.

Climbed this route yesterday (7/18/12) at the end of the day and enjoyed it more than I expected to. The first clip is a little nervy, but after that the climbing is sustained and thoughtful (and a little pumpy) with a decent view of the canyon.
