Surmount the chockstone and clip a bolt above it. Chimney your way up very featured rock passing another bolt to a big shelf. From here clip your way up really cool varnished desert pockets to a sandy hollow jug, from the jug find the best sloper and rock your way up onto a really nice view and optional belay. From 2 bolt rap/belay hop your way across the "bumps" to the big shelf below the sandy summit. One bolt protects the "summit" moves (5.7+). No anchor exists on the summit, downclimb.
Start in the gash facing the road on the Player Hater Bumps formation. As you gaze back into Pine Canyon from the road the route sits on the right shoulder of the canyon. Look for the window in the rock.
7 QD's should suffice, a lousy #1 camalot placement exists above the crux bolt if you are so inclined. If your running it as one pitch expect rope drag and bring lots of long runners. I recommend doing it as 1 1/2 pitches.
