From the small ledge, juggle your way up the arete to a stance under a small roof (crux). Follow the bolts to a big ledge under the prominent roof. Pull the roof, and anchors are just above that.
On the left wall (capped by a roof) of RE crag. Start beneath a small ledge just (very slightly) to the left of the arete.
5 bolts + anchors

This is likely the hardest of the routes at the Ohiopyle crags to date. Much more technical and sequence intense than the others. I'd add a letter to the grade if you don't milk the rest before the upper roof.
