Start on a right-facing slab and plug a large-ish cam in the corner (#1 or #1.5). Climb through moderate terrain, clipping two bolts and getting established on an overlap. From here, the crux begins and trends right towards the third bolt. A couple options exist, all involving crimps and a dynamic snatch. Continue to chains through 15 ft of easier, but still relatively difficult stone.
This is a fun route, and it's close to town. Definitely save it for that half day when you can't quite make the hike to the mega crags.
This is to the right of 'The Damage Done' and to the left of 'Momentary Lapse of Ethics'.
7 QDs, a cam (around #1-#2 ish).

5.9 to a rest, then a four or five move V9 that's crimpy, sharp, and really damn hard, to a enormous jug, to 5.11.

Under Location for this route, it says right of "Damage Done" and left of "Momentary lapse of Ethics". To my knowledge, that is not accurate. M.L.E is left of Temple. Damage Done is right of Temple.
