Scramble up to the little platform cliff left of Red Wall. Locate the bolt line just right of Mr. Science crack. Follow the six bolts to the bolted anchor. The crux is getting to the first bolt, otherwise bring a stick clip. The route becomes an endurance jug haul after the first bolt.
I removed the briars from the ledge at the base of this route. Get some!

This is a Gus Glitch line called Tom Waits for No One. There is a variation called The Flyby, which basically clips the first bolt of Tom, stems up the dihedral then finishes left on Ask Mr. Science.

I still feel that this route is awfully close to Mr. Science especially with natural protection next to the first AND second bolt. The stuff left of this bolt line is not the line of most protection. If you look at the Kelley topo the crack above the second bolt is on Ask Mr. Science. Either way, it's a fun route but I feel it is smack dab on top of Ask Mr. Science. I plan on leading Ask Mr. Science and I'll update my opinion then. Happy Climbing!
