Boulder up to the first bolt. This is the crux, and it is definitely harder than the 5.5 rating given in Hubbel's book. Though after the first bolt the climbing eases considerably.
The bolts are shoddy, but it seems that if they were more solid that the placements would be ok. I just don't think any of them would hold much of a fall.
I also would not consider this a beginner route, but it is a good introduction to bolted, slab climbing.
Walk right from the four main routes on the wall slightly up the hill. This is the left most of the trio of easier routes on the right end of the wall. The start is distinctly harder than the other two route nearby.
Four "bolts" and a tree anchor.

Guessing the 4th bolt is really the last bolt on Lynn's route? Start is a bit bouldery, I would say the first 5 feet are more like 5.8 or 5.8+, certainly felt harder than the start of D&D, but it's a cruise after the first bolt.
