After clearing the hiking ramp, clip a bolt that just might save you from rolling all the way down to the dirt should you slip on the stacked choss during the next 8 feet of climbing. Tread lightly up to the next bolt. If you find the clipping hold feels like a sloper, just keep moving right, there's a jug. Just above the second bolt is a balancy, crimpy move that might test your headgame. Great movement all the way up this line. One can Move left or right, depending on your place along the route to find easier climbing. The best line sticks to the face on the more direct line.
Between Fossil (Trad Route) and 3 Feet From An Orgy - a.k.a. Fossil Fling, #3 on the topo.
6 Bolts, and chain anchor
This route snapped a Midland local's ankle one Sunday in 2006 when he blew the clip at the third bolt. Earned him a trip out hopping on one leg aided by two climbers at his sides.
