I actually thought the crux was getting off the ground (unless you use the crack start of Surplus Cheaper Hands a few feet left, which I assume is off-route). Difficulty seemed to ease up after the second bolt. Then again I did find myself doing a pull up on my finger nails somewhere around the 3rd bolt, but that was more painful than cruxy.
The anchor is entirely rebolted now.

The First Ascent of this route was by Norman Boles, George Watson and John Tuttle in 1986. I think I neglected to send in the FA info to Donny Reid and so he or somebody named it "Age of Industry" as a fair summation of the development of numerous routes in this area at this time. We probably had some dorky name for it now lost to posterity.
A little sporty in the last run out to the anchors, but loose flakes long gone should make this reasonable. Thanks to those who replaced bolts on it.
Opening moves are a bit of a reach problem but you can alternately start in the Surplus Cheaper Hands dihedral if you just want some fun 5.10 climbing.
