The route overhangs briefly at the second bolt, and manages to be pretty pumpy for the grade.
The route is on the West-facing wall in the corridor. The East-facing wall is part of the De Spectaculis formation in The Arena. The route starts about 10 feet right of the arete, and follows a prominent rib, which is about five feet wide.
BETA PHOTO: This pic should help you find the route.
A shady character at bolt 2.
The route's namesake, perhaps?

Great route! Plenty fun. I would recommend that your belayer wears a helmet. There is still some loose stuff that comes off. Being in a corridor there is no where to hide from the ricochet effect. Good stuff.

Looks like a textbook example of a bolted crack.

Looks that way in the photo, but the route only goes into the crack for a couple of moves then moves away on huecoes.

A pretty good route and deceptively steep. I didn't feel too concerned about the wall behind me as the climbing is fairly positive and the bolts are in good locations.
