Past the Big Chief-center wall's cave area and around a corner you will notice a large water stain extending to the ground (the route running up this stain is called Wampum, 5.7). The next set of bolts to the right is Route Stealers From Hell.
Climb a face with small holds with a crux around the first bolt. After the initial crux, climbing gets easier for the last few bolts.
This route is probably named because people wanting to warm up on War Path (5.9) located around the corner towards the cave from this route, found someone on the route.
This is probably one of the better warmups if the easier climbs are being used.
4 bolts to a 2 bolt top anchor.

Fun climb, but not sustained. A good way to break into 5.10.
