Start up Rat crack, do the crux of that route then cut right to a bolt out right (new 3/8"). The climb then goes straight up to reach the left side of a horizontal crack which is foot-traversed straight right for about 10-15 feet, clips a rusty bolt and then continues up on rough orange rock past one more rusty bolt to a rusty anchor.
Fun climbing on this but it looks like this route hasn't been done in years with the flaky rock and vegetated horizontal crack mid-route. Were this to get cleaned up and the bolts replaced it might actually get done more often.
