Okay...I'll add the details.

Located: About half way up Dillard Canyon...about where you would start Hypocrite's Corner. Head out on an low angled apron/slab to the start of the route. Climb a featured slab with interesting waves, up to a prominent black water groove. Follow the steep water groove past several bolts until the route angles off and you hit the anchors.

Gear: Standard rack, hybrid aliens work great, bolts, rap anchors.

and it's more like 190 feet....take two ropes.
