Lee is just below the crux roof move on the route....

Description 

This shy route flirts with the difficulties of the steep dark streak left of "Nguvu" but avoids them with a short traverse.

Head up three bolts shared with "Nguvu" on occasionally flakey rock (10a?, easier if you know where to grab). Cut left with an easy traverse to a no-hands stance below the fourth bolt. Clip the fourth bolt and climb steep but juggy terrain below a small roof. Pull the roof (crux) with the help of some killer hidden pockets. Clip one more bolt if you like and make a couple easy moves to the anchors.

Originally rated 5.10b, the consensus seems to be that it's a notch harder. A fun route, whatever the rating, and it makes for a good warmup for the harder stuff in the Amphitheater.
