Start just left of Oscar de la Cholla. Climb up face and left-facing corner/crack past four bolts to a steep bulge. Clip a bolt and make a series of hard moves up to a bucket. Clip the last bolt and then the anchors.
7 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.

Actually a pretty nice route with an interesting boulder-problem crux, including a dynamic move and a mono. Unfortunately, there is a drilled solution pocket right smack dab in the middle of the crux. In addition to being obviously manufactured, it is also completely unnecessary. I found an 11+ sequence that didn't touch the pocket....

Not sure if something broke in the crux area since this first went up, but it feels pretty hard for 11d. This route would probably get 2 stars if the bolt at the crux was in a better location. In its current location, when you pitch off the crux move, you can end up clipping the ramp below and then swinging to the left. Kind of unpleasant.
