Don't be put off by the name, this 3-bolt variation direct start to Black Streak is neither dirty, nor frightening. It's clean, and bolted like a sport climb for the 5.11 part.
Begin just left of the usual Black Streak/Clean Green Dream start, left of a black water streak. Clip the first bolt from the left. Enter the crux, traversing right past the 1st bolt using some tiny sidepulls & sharp edges to get to a good undercling. Easier climbing straight up leads past the next 2 bolts (decide if you're going to contrivedly avoid the Black Streak crack entirely). Join the main part of Black Streak, and climb straight up the streak, which has a couple of short sections of 5.10, usually with a bolt nearby (but you'll probably place 1-2 pieces of gear, and need some for an anchor at the top).
Direct starting variation left of Black Streak.
Scramble/rappel off the east end of the rock.
6 bolts, plus a few cams & nuts to 1".
