Although Valentine's Day gets all the traffic, this is definitely a not to be missed line if you're in the area. The Haj starts out in a left leaning dihedral and works up to an interesting exit move from the dihedral. From there, easy terrain leads up and right to a communal rap anchor.
Start left of Scalawag and Carpetbagger on the ledge system. Look for an acacia bush and then look up for the steep, varnished corner that is this fine route.
A standard rack will do- a two bolt anchor up and right gets you back to the deck with a single 60m.

A good route while it lasts. The clean dihedral is easier and better than it looks from the ground. I ended up going up and left to the Route to Mecca anchor which adds about 40 feet of rubble strewn 4th class for an unimpressive ending to an otherwise good climb.
Is there an anchor to the right, too?

A great route on solid rock. Pulling on slightly insecure finger jams followed by knee bars and face climbing. Solid for the grade at the bottom. Old School 5.9. It climbs much steeper than it looks getting over the initial bulge.
