From Russia With Love

Climb the crack in the corner. Exit left and climb the crack up left.
Up to the left of Recollections of Pacifica, around the arete and on a small ledge below a crack in the corner.
Walk right on the ledge to bolts to rap off.
Regular rack. Gear anchor.

The guidebook calls this route a little contrived, and it is. The lower corner is probably the crux, although the upper corner has a thin move right at the top (SO much easier if you just reach out to the jugs on the left). Instead of building a gear anchor, just put in a directional at the top of the route and then walk 20 feet right and belay off the Recollections of Pacifica/Wafer Step bolts--you'll have to rap from them anyway.
