Climb up a short, right leaning crack then pull past a bulge to a ledge. Climb the steeper, sculptured face above to the top.
Start about 30 feet to the right (toward Quail Springs) of the Mel Cracks at the next face. There is a large acacia (cat's claw) bush in front of the face.
Gear to a blue or purple Camalot to protect the route and medium to large cams and some slings to rig an anchor.

This climb has 4 bolts on it, the first is a glue in. Some engaging moves on the lower section. Standard Josh grain ball bearing detract from the climbing, as does the ledge halfway up the route you could park a car on. Still, some interesting and challenging moves on the bottom half. Felt more like 5.10 to me.
Hey JunkSweat, curious how you know the FA party names but not the name of this route?
