Just past the crux of Whammy Play (5.9), Riverside...
This link-up combines the easier portions of two existing routes for the easist route in the immediate area.
Start up Whammy, trending left for 2 bolts and then continue leftward (avoiding the crux of Whammy) to join Power Play at it's 3rd bolt (above it's crux). Finish up Power Play to shared anchors on the ledge above.
This route does a fair bit of wandering so it's recommended to use long draws on bolts #2, 4, 5 and to use a full length runner on bolt #3. Done this way there's little to no rope drag yet adequate protection for those climbing at their limit.
7 bolts, ring anchors (shared w/ Whammy)

Despite its wandering nature it actually climbs quite well as it progresses through steep ground on good holds.

Nice climb, good holds. Exactly like Whammy without the crux. Fun climb overall.

This is an ehh link up. The only enjoyable part for me was switching between Whammy and Powerplay.
I guess it's nice to have something that a 5.9 climber can finish but if you need something this easy you probably shouldn't be at the quarry.

Chongo, I agree. Oh, and having some long draws could be a good idea to minimize drag.
