This route is listed as Unknown and is #23 in Bloom's guidebook. It is the large, left-facing flake about 30ft. left of "Trip to the Vet". The guidebook rates it as 5.11-, but it felt more like 5.10+ to me. Either way, it was enjoyable. It is a big hands crack behind a large flake. The moves were somewhat awkward and balancy, but are all there. Surprisingly pumpy.
Big hands gear, mostly #3-#3.5 camalots. Bring a few pieces bigger and smaller to supplement

It felt like 11- for me with my small hands- it was exhausting.
