I believe that the route is called How Homer Got His Groove Back. See LaBelle's guide for central WA.

Don't miss this sustained and technical face. It's intense all the way to the chains and is no gimme. No move is harder than .10b in my opinion.

I've climbed this route probably over 30 times. I have never fallen on it, but it is not easy either! One of my favorites.
