Scramble up about 20 feet to the base of the clean face. A series of thin edges takes you to the crux at the last bolt. Look for a sidepull about 2 feet right of the bolt and using the edge to the left make a last thin move to reach the ledge and anchor.

This is around the corner, approximately 15 feet, to the right of Bullet the Brown Cloud.
4 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.

I found this route horribly contrived. It has 3 out of 3 stars in the guidebook, but I must disagree. This route needs to tape the holds to make it 11a.
You can grab the right arÍte at any given time and still be in the bolt line on the start to cruise the first few bolts. Then when you go out left you can use an entire crack system.
To only use the face, while maybe fun, seems very forced. When I tried to use only the face after leading it and coming down disappointed and wondering how this thing got three stars, I found it harder than Bullet the Brown Cloud (11b) and Mr. Squirrel Places a Nut (11c). To make it 11a, you would have to pick and choose the arÍte holds you would like to use and thus diminish the enjoyment of using only the face holds.
