Description 

Rock Lobster climbs a left-facing dihedral just right of Thanks a Latte'. After the angle decreases, place a #2 C4 (or #4 C4 higher) and reach far right to a bolt. A long reach to a sidepull and a hard crank (5.10) placed me on an insecure slab and the second bolt. I diagonaled up and right across heavily lichened slab (green Alien), then reached right to a crack, then climbed straight up very heavily lichened rock to the top, where I slung a block and placed a yellow Alien for an anchor. Perhaps the intent of the route setter was for a climber to continue right onto R4, instead of straight up.

Protection 

SR and two bolts.
