Start as for Dave's Deviation, but instead of moving right to gain Dave's finger crack, head straight up a killer thin lieback flake to the face above. 2 bolts protect thin, slabby face climbing. A one-move-wonder exists at the second bolt; I thought it was quite a bit harder than the similarly graded crux on Chingadera (5.11a), but YMMV. Bust out right after the second bolt to regain DD towards the top.
Immediately left of Dave's Deviation, and right of the Jam Crack. Rappel to descend, or join another route to the top of Tahquitz. Easily TR'ed after climbing DD.
Thin to 1', 2 bolts (3/8" buttonheads). 3 bolt rap anchor (100') shared with DD.
