The crux is moving past the last bolt to the anchors. It is fun and short.
This route is one of several nice routes in the alcove area of the pool wall in Ouray. It is a friendly place to climb with closely spaced bolts. Park in the upper lot for the pool in town. Cross the road and head up the obvious wash. You pass an old no trespassing sign, access is currently allowed, continue up the wash and you will be in the alcove.
Groove Is In The Heart is the second route from the left once you enter the alcove. The top half climbs a water groove.
Three bolts to the anchor. When I did the route, the top bolt was bent from rock fall but was still clipable.

Wow, this rock is laughably smooth. It's short, but the tricky slab moves by the last bolt make it worth doing.
