What a nice 5.9! Start to the left of the high first bolt and climb up to reach a nice ledge and traverse right to make the first clip. From here, head up and right to the 2nd bolt (crux). It's nothing but jugs from here. This route is every bit as good as the many moderates on Orange Oswald Wall.
From the descent gully, continue right (facing the lake). This climb is around the arete after passing Hat Change, 5.10d and Blaze Got a New Job, 5.11b. Start is just to the left of a large boulder.
7 bolts, shuts. At any point you could supplement the bolts with gear if you felt so inclined.

Nice long moderate! Good, powerful crux down low. Then towards the top, the climb slabs out a bit and there are more slopers. The top makes for a fun view as you feel like you are on a huge flake.
