At the crux of Edger Sanction.
True to it's name this quality route features fairly continuous thin edge climbing for most of it's length and is stout for the grade.
Boulder directly up to a high first bolt (or traverse from the left via some easier moves) then make the crux moves on the way to the 2nd bolt after which the size of the holds increase and it eases off in difficulty.
Just left of Rat Crack.
3 bolts, 3 bolt anchor/rap (all 3'8")

This route starts by traversing right using some delicate footwork. A few committing moves gets one to the first bolt. Moreover, the stance when clipping the second bolt can be a bit tenuous. The bolts are placed where they have to be, but this route is kinda stern for Big Rock.

One of Big Rock's best. Clean thin edges, sustained. Might want a spot to the first bolt.

Short, yes, but my favorite route at BR! The crux is a beautifully delicate sequence on dime edges. I have led this starting from the left, from the right, and straight up; all about the same difficulty. A BR must do.

If this route was three times taller it would be a classic! Best route at Big Rock!

Left, right, or straight up? Bill is right on, it's all about the same. The landing has gotten uglier over the years and a pad and/or a spotter would inspire confidence while seeking the 1st clip. The age of sticky rubber eased the sting a bit, but as Bill indicated, those dime edges (some larger) are a great test of your edging skills. Totally agree, this is one of the best routes at Big Rock.

I don't know what ways best but you can TR it after leading rat crack.
