Twenty feet right of The Angry Inch is a prominent left-slanting rail system that marks this route.
Hand-traverse the juggy rail past three bolts (5.9) and then gain a stance below the final bolt at an arete. Reachy and somewhat insecure moves past the last bolt will see you through to the anchors - taller climbers will have an easier time with this as the crux is a bit reachy.
Quality climbing but it's over way too soon to garner many stars. Remember, it's all about the last three feet!
4 bolts, sport anchors

Top section is fun and technical and probably pushes the grade up a hair. No extra beta here except it's well protected and enjoy.
