Near the bottom.
This isn't my route, but its been there for at least 2 years and nobody has written it up. So, to complete the list, here I go. (I made up the name since I hate "unknowns.") It had loose blocks two years ago, and has a doozie standing there today, with an "X." Worth doing if you're collecting the full set.
Sorry I don't have a photo, but it's the obvious bolt line between High Hard One
and Group Therapy
. If you belay at the tree just above the rap anchors, it's 97 feet up to the top. Head up the easy blocks/slab to the bolt and continue to the bad black band (beware loose blocks here). Continue up the face/cracks just to the right of the right-facing dihedral to an overhang/bulge and up to the anchors.
10 or 11 QDs to some knock-off Mussy Hooks.

There does not appear to be loose blocks on this anymore.

I didn't notice any loose rocks along the way. Everything I used in the black band seemed solid enough.
This climb would be a good first lead for a timid climber - tons of bolts!
