Description 

Fun and worthwhile. There is a variety of climbing on this short route.

Start by pulling an overhang to a ledge with a birch tree at ~10', then head up and right towards the crack. The crux comes midway at a bulge, and very-small nuts may (or may not) offer your only protection from ledgefall.

Rappel from pine trees above.

Location 

Just past the closure, look for a set of four right-facing corners (see picture). Catnip starts at the second of the four, and the rest of the route is defined by a discontinuous crack above.

Short and sweet. Williams calls this 'G', and with a small regular stopper of any sort well placed, that's my opinion too.
