Does this one start in the corridor, and trend up and left?

Can't you tell from the great route description? It's the fun one, with a few crack moves.

The new Jtree West guide disagrees significantly with the 92 Vogel guide. According to the new one this starts just right of the large boulder in the corridor. Up to the horizontal just above the boulder and left into a crack. It then traverses right at the top horizontal. It's the route labeled Anointed Seagull in the 92 Guide, and pictured here: Photo

Fun route - nice moves with good protection. The traverse up top was a little desperate for me, but that was probably sloppy climbing on my part. I had this as 5.9+; however, I could agree with 5.9. It's just the other 5.8s in the area are much easier, in my opinion.
