Description 

This worthwhile route is a good option on a hot afternoon or chilly morning. Certainly one of the best routes on the left side, this route can be a bit dirty at times, despite good-quality rock. Begin by scrambling up to the belay stance. Its possible to climb a mini-pitch up to a good ledge with a belay bolt for minimal rope drag, but its perfectly do-able (and surely less of a hassle) to belay from the 2nd class ledges below. Snake up the vertical wall, occasionally reaching right around the arete.

Location 

Just above the pullout is a V-shaped wall. In the center of the "v" is a blunt, vertical arete. OOTS ascends the left side of this arete.

Nice bit of movement on this line a must do at this spot.

Fun route but not sustained. Bolts are not optimally placed to protect against a broken ankle on a ledge. Not the best lead for an aspiring 5.10 climber. Pretty good rock quality for Gilman.
