Stay on the arete left of End to End. This is easier said than done. This route, End of an Era, and End to End are often inter-mixed due to bolt placement.
Starting on the arete proper and following the bolts left onto the face with easier climbing to the anchors gives you "Death of a Dinosaur".
Start on End to End and crossing to D.O.D. when the climbing gets sustained finishing on the easer top section gives you "End of an Era."
This is left of End to End.
Bolts and pins.

I climbed this today and found there to be a pretty hard crux between bolts 2 and 3. Probably harder than 9+. There is a point where I basically had to heel hook my left foot and then smear with my right. About halfway up the holds get bigger and climbing gets easier...but the crux was reasonably spicy. I usually don't end up using heel hooks on 5-9+ climbs. Have some key holds in this sequence broke off on the crux?
