Nice crack climbing to a bolt, then traverse to anchors. Fun route, bring tape.
Find Waste Age, the tough-looking 50 foot bolted face. Dobie is just to the left, and ends by traversing right to the same anchors.
Std rack and 1 bolt.

The ancient fixed pins at the anchor have been replaced with bolts. I believe the route's single bolt 3/4 the way has been replaced as well - it looks new and super solid, anyway.
Thanks to whoever took the time do make this popular climb much more safe.

It's fun to climb this route up to the bolts then bring some larger cams (1"-3" or so) to traverse right in the horizontal crack that continues right of the bolts.

Short route, but a little bit of everything -
- finger cracks
- hand cracks
- stemming and face moves
- slab finish
I'd say all 4 of those styles go around 5.8, so its a good challenge for a 5.8 leader. Just wish it was longer.
