|Lower Cliffs, Upper Tier
Start in an alcove that is near the left end of the Upper Tier and just right of some left slanting cracks. Climb a steep section past a bolt (sporty) onto lower angled rock. Continue up a groove past a couple more bolts and some gear placements to a bulge near the top of the wall. Move right to a bolt and surmount the bulge (crux for some folks) to the top. Rappel/lower from the same anchor as When Joey Comes Marching Home.
This route is located roughly 30 feet to the left of When Joey Comes Marching Home (listed here as "Joey's") in an alcove. The alcove is about 30 feet to the right of the left edge of the Upper Tier.
About 5 bolts, a few TCUs and small to medium cams.

I think this is the route listed as 'Super Slab 4 You' .10c in "Locals Guide to Rock Climbs of N. Tahoe". Your description matches the climb we did today and the photos in the guidebook.

Finally got to try this route last Saturday. Thought it was supposed to be 5.9 (poor memory) and found the moves to the second bolt quite hard. All moves seemed hard! Definitely rest spots but pretty sustained climbing. Didn't make the last moves, arms too fried, but all in all a pretty good route! Love the ending traversing up and right on the thin "rail" holds to the crack. Very nice place to be! A few more ascents would help clean up a bit of lichen "crusting" and then this would be one of the better routes here! 10 a/b sounds about right...
