Climb straight up and then make a difficult traverse left to gain the 2nd bolt (hard to clip, crux). From here, go straight up aiming for positive holds on the black face above. This route felt hard for the grade. I assume a few key holds may have been damaged from the rockfall on the neighboring Ginsu. Nice climb though!
Walk along the trail approximately 20 ft right of the start of Flying Off the Handle, 5.12b. Start at the pile of rubble (note the bolt in one of the blocks on the ground, the block fell off of Ginsu, 5.11c).
4 bolts, shuts on Slap Happy, 5.12c.

Returning 5 years later after my first attempt and being much stronger, I still found this route to be quite difficult between the 2nd and 3rd bolt. It's also a little spicy there as you would get pretty close to decking if you blow the 3rd clip, or at a minimum, you're going to fall on your belayer! That aside, this route has awesome sequences and is truly worthy of a go if its not too close to your limit.
