This route is just to the right of Rush Buick. It starts below two bolts just to the right of that dihedral. Start with an awkward, but well-protected move to get going. I found the crux to be passing the second bolt. After that bolt began a rising traverse to the right underneath an overhang with gear in somewhat crunchy rock. After traversing for a bit (it's fairly obvious when to stop traversing), head straight up to the anchor atop Nobody's Home and belay there. There's a bit of a runout at the end, but the climbing is relatively easy.
Descend by making a 100 foot rappel from the anchor.
Overall, I found the pitch to a be little heads-up so it might not be a great one to test your limits.
This route is located a few feet to the right of Rush Buick. Get yourself to that route and look for two bolts just right of Rush Buick's dihedral; that's the start of the route.
A standard rack will do.

The bolts on this one have indeed been replaced with modern hardware.

I ended up at the anchors for Rush Buick via a thin crack that went straight up after a short traverse right from the last bolt. A fun route worth doing if you're in the area.

Going straight through the roof to Rush Buick is great!
