Description 

This route is on Revolution Buttress, a series of faces and cracks to the right of the landmark black water streak. The Drain, a classic bouldering traverse, lies immediately left of this line.

Protection 

Four bolts. The first bolt is sixteen feet up, so be careful. The crux is after the second bolt.

At the crux (second bolt), I kind of went straight up and to the right over the roof, still within clipping disance of the bolt to the left. This felt maybe 10b, and I then had to traverse left a ways to clip the third cold shut. I suppose going left at the second bolt to the third is the intended way, but I couldn't tell--not much traffic here, didn't see any chalk on these climbs.
