Shoot up the easy-angled face to the first pink bolt (up high) on the left side of the black streak. Follow 8 bolts up a contiuously vertical face and angle right to the chains. Nice, long warm-up. None of the guides I've seen have a name or FA information for this route.
On the left side, where the streambed touches the Orangutan Wall, climb the left side of the black streak. Metolius rap anchors.
8 pink bolts to a 2 bolt anchor (shared with route to the right).

This was a nice fun line with plenty of good holds the entire way up. There is a short steeper-than-vertical section about 60 ft up, but it's not terribly difficult as long as you conserve energy on the rest of the route. Felt easy for a 5.10b, but it was a good long, rewarding climb. My favorite of the handful I did on this wall (Sep 22, 2010).
