Past the first crux of Delinquency (5.10d), Rivers...
A gradually steeping slab next to an arete leads past three bolts, and a balancy stand-up move, to the security of a ledge. Higher, another delicate sequence leads into a crack which is jammed/liebacked to the anchors.
Short but high quality with enjoyable moves throughout, particularly on the lower arete section.
Climbs the striking arete 70' left of Agony Arch
; immediately left of this climb is The Degenerate (5.12b) and just around the corner to the right is Corruption (5.12b/c).
5 bolts, open shuts

I did the FA of this route in the mid 1980's. Were the bolts that I placed not there in 2003?

May seem easier for those taller... there were some longer reaches for me (I'm 5.8")
