Above the crux.
This route is located just uphill from """Index/Middle/Heel Toe" and is found on a large detached pillar/fin. This route is located on the far right hand side of the Fin, just before an obvious crack, splitting the fin from the Top Rope Wall. I call this route Top Rope Wall I as the climbing will use the wall to the right a little bit, at the start.
This route is fairly easy and climbs just to the right of "Pocket Full...." The climbing is only vertical for the first 2 bolts, very straightforward and short. A little bit squeezed? Not that classic.
5 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.
This route is just to the right of Pocket Full of Kryptonite.

I believe the formation that this route is on is called the Dinosaur's Foot. The name of this route is: THE JOINT VENTURE - concenus of the people I've talked with is 5.9+, one star sounds right. Sport climb with five bolts (not four) FA: Pat Thompson & Rick Thompson, July, 2001. Starts just right of Kryptonite.

I'd concern with the 5.9 rating moving over the bulge near the top. A short route that works for a good warm up.

8- for the opening moves, but only 5.6 after that, at tops.

If compared to other 5.8s (Stout Blue Vein) in the area, the opening moves are much harder. The route mellows after the second bolt, becoming closer to a 5.8 in difficulty.

I loved this route. I agree with Rick and company, 9+ at the bottom, maybe even 10a if you don't reach the big sidepulls to the right. Steep fun moves on good positive holds.
