i don't think i have ever seen anybody else on this route. this is really too bad because it is a great line, and makes a nice option when the wait list on suburbia et al is deep.
to find this route, please use the directions in "jelly bellies" to find the big dark corner. NSKB is the route to the right of jelly bellies. it starts in a right facing corner on dark rock.
the first bolt on this route is a bit committing. if you are tall you can probably hang way out and get it. if you are un-tall, you will probably have to sell out pretty hard. a good spot from you belayer might be appropriate here. after this, fire your way up past 3 more bolts and rend a little bit right for the 5th. great technical crux here. the gap from the last bolt to the anchors is a bit long, but the climbing is fairly easy and non-pumpy. take your time and have a good one.
7 bolts and anchors (first bolt is a bit committing)

This route wanders from left to right and is a little runout at the top. Great route nice moves. 7 or 8 bolts, I think.
