Start up shattered left-facing corner, then traverse left to first bolt. Pass two more bolts to gain ledge system, step up and left on easy terrain, then climb the initially overhanging right-facing dihedral until possible to traverse right to anchor.
Gear to 3” and bolts.

This route starts with three bolts on a steep east-facing 30 foot wall that is just left of the obviously largest and steepest wall at the crag (i.e. "main cliff").
To the right of "Naughty and Nice" (in order) are "Lion of Judah" which shares the first 15 with this route, "Day of Atonement," and "Hollow Victories" which has the lone bolt on the "main cliff". To the left are "Squeeze Play" a toprope problem arete, "Tunnel Vision" which starts with gear in the dark dihedral, and "The Darkhorse" which starts with 2 bolts on a steep face.
These are some of the cleanest and steepest routes here.

I felt the direct start adds to the challenge and quality of the bottom part of this route. No need to traverse in from the broken corner. The dihedral above the ledge was terribly dirty. We cleaned what we could, but more traffic is needed on this thing.

glad you liked the direct start. it's just a huge fall if you don't make the first bolt, so i figured most people would plug gear out right, then traverse in. and yes, the upper dihedral gets seasonal runoff and therefore dirty. i'm guessing you are the first one on it this year. it will be fine once cleaned - and to me, that's the 10d part of the route. we figured the bolted section was a stout 10c.
