Rear Entry and Dufty's Popoff. Captain Trivia (5....
From the top of the block (mentioned in the Location section) go straight up to an overhang with an old manky pin about 5 ft below it and another manky-looking pin just above the lip. Place gear and move up past a few bolts. Step left to the corner and a nice rest then climb the corner past another bolt and a gear placements to a stance below the overhang. Climb the left side of the overhang and past the final bolts. There isn't much for gear past the final bolt but you can sling a large protruding block with a 48" runner. At the top you'll be where Dufty's Popoff tops out. For an anchor you can use the pine tree that's about 15' back from the edge.
From the bolts atop the first pitch of Skyline Traverse move up and right until you're on top of the large block and a finger crack in front of you where you can get gear. About 15-20 ft up is the first overhang; locate the line of bolts above it. Dufty's Popoff goes further right from here, ascends the left-facing corner, and pulls the roof way up there on the right side; Rear Entry goes up the left side of the roof.
You will top out on Lower Broadway Ledge, next to the top of Dufty's Popoff and Skyline Traverse.
Descend via the Bee Sting Corner rap line or walk off by scrambling around the corner to Luncheon Ledge.
Six bolts plus a few gear placements. First bolt is about 25-30 ft up and the first overhang you pull is below that. You can get gear at the overhang though. A #3 cam or equivalent is helpful on this route as is a 48" runner to sling a block after the last bolt and avoid a big runout.
