Jim French on the sadly manufactured but fun route...


Although this climb is a result of short sighted behavior, it exists, and is one of the cleanest looking faces at Karen. Assembly Line ascends the south facing block in the center of Karen Rock. Climb one of two or three variations to reach the base of the block. Look for the drilled 2 finger pocket and decide to avoid it for 12a or pull on it for 11 a/b. A couple thin edges and a sloping top out get you up. If it weren't chipped it would have been 3 stars +.
