Start just right of Iranian Arms Deal on a thin face. The first crux is just making the first clip off of the thin, greasy holds. Once on the ledge above the first bolt, man up and clip the fixed pin before following the line of ferns across multiple slopey ledges. Finish by manteling onto the sloping topout.
Route is located immediately to the right of Iranian Arms Deal toward the center of this area.
4 bolts plus anchors

Difficult start up to the ledge and difficult finish up to the chains. Many people get off this climb annoyed because of the relative difficulty of this climb compared to 5.9s everywhere else on the Green Belt. I think it might be closer to a 5.10a just because it's not intuitive.

Mike's comments are accurate. There is always a lot of discussion about this climb's grade. I don't want to waste too much energy talking about it since I'm not very fond of the climb, but it certainly was "surprisingly difficult" to me. Although I flashed it (on top rope) successfully, the top of the climb made me upset.
