Description 

The historic "official" difficulty grade in the old West Point guide was 5.10-
The historic route description was:
"Pull through the overhang and into the right side of a pocket 30 feet up. Take the bolts to the right to the top to rap/belay station."

Perhaps this route shares the same move over the top of the obvious overhang with "S&S Left" -- but takes an easier approach to that move.

Could set up top-rope by making a short rappel from above the top of the cliff down to anchor bolts. Then might be convenient to place a directional to make the lower top-rope section come down roughly through the "triangle" of bolts at the overhang crux.

Location

RRT# 191
. (between "S&S Left" and "Good Choss")

Protection 

Bolts -- years ago there were 10 bolts, but I have not checked to see if that count is still accurate.

Did this climb yesterday and was quite impressed. Bolts were good, holds were surprisingly good. Actually founds this easier than side pull plus.

Thoughtful moves up to the obvious overhang, then tricky to figure out how to get through it. Followed by lots of interesting 5.8-5.9 moves above. Followed by fun 5.6-5.7 moves to the top.
