Location 

This is just to the right of the Tab. Tower. You have to climb a short and dihedral to reach the ledge where this route is located (use 0.5-3 inch pro).

You can see the rap anchors from the base of the approach dihedral. It starts as a chimney and then goes to fingers (30 feet).

Protection 

6-7 number 3s, 2 number 2s, 1 number 1, and a couple of slings.

Lower from a two bolt anchor.
