This is a great sport climb. Gain the arete (way hard!) and climb straight up making the crux on tenuous, reachy moves on perfectly small crimps to a thank God jug. Then stem acrobatically to the chimney feature, and finally a run up the slab to the anchors. This was impressively bolted on the lead.
This is to the left of P.O. Crack.
Quickdraws, 4 or 5 bolts

FA. Doug Berry, ground up, hand drilling. The lower part of the climb feel down. It is now easier to climb up, clip 2nd bolt then go down/over to corner on right and up, staying at 11+. The moves going from second bolt over right to arete will increase grade.

Thanks for the correction, Brent. I've changed the FA info above.

Oh, bolted on lead. I can see now, why the bolts not at the clipping stances. Kinda sucks. Like a lot of routes at Ophir, this one needs a rebuild. Get with the modern world, man!
