Jazzman shares a start with Birdland, but continues straight up after the second bolt through thin, crux terrain through the third bolt. Nice edges continue up through an incessant line of bolts until a second crux (9/10a) is encountered in a depression higher up the wall.
Jazzman climbs the face just left of the arete formed by Beer for Breakfast's dihedral. The start, shared with Birdland, is easily identified by a bedazzled pothole about five feet up the wall, beneath the first bolt.
Something like 12 bolts protect this line, so bring a bunch of quickdraws. It unfortunately received retro-bolting treatment from the same folks who took care of Aunt Edna's Costume Jewelry (hardware's the same).
Per Mojo Stylee: As of Feb. 19, 2011, most of the bolts, including the anchors, have been removed from this route.
Per Neil Wachowski: there are now 6 bolts left.

Six bolts still remain on this route, which matches the guidebook description. If you wish to secure the (easier) portion of the route after the bolts dry up then bring a small cam or medium stopper or two.
