This route starts left of Anacram (5.10c) at a yucca below a small roof.
Climb up to the overlap, and the corner beyond, then cross a slab and tackle a short steep section. Climb the crack above to the roof line. Cross this on the left and head up a thin, steep crack, this eases to become a chimney.
Standard rack to 3". Small wires at the crux.
Steve Kahan at the crux.

A more interesting and in my opinion better way to finish this route is to move left 5' from the base of the chimney to a short (12-15') vertical dihedral with a roughly finger sized crack in it. A couple steep moves up this lead to a mantel top out instead of the easier / less elegant squeeze chimney to the right.

I agree with Josh about the finish. This is a fantastic route - one of my favorite pitches at JTree so far.

It is also possible to traverse left from the thin crack section and finish at the bolted anchor for Sig Alert (aka Cast Up A Highway).
The crux of this route seems to be the initial corner at the bottom.

Super fun, cool climbing, lots of cool mini roofs and stems. DO IT!
