Description 

Near Dan Hare's route- Resisting Arete which says "Begin w/ Bowling Alley and climb part way up, move left at a bolt and up the Arete." (We couldn't find the bolt?!) Shallow Grave begins in Bowling Alley but immediately moves left and up hanging, shallow dihedral/crack capped by a dangerous looking, but seemingly solid, block. From the top of the block step left at the arete and wander up pocketed and sparsely protected 5.8 to tree at top.

From the description of Resisting Arete posted on this site:

"Climb up this chimney only as far as necessary to pull onto the wall to the left and make your way to the arete. The route felt harder than the 10b/c it was given, but that may have been due to the amount of dirt and lichen on it, which made it feel insecure."

Sounds like you and I both could only find the same way up there...
I think these ascents are both likely of Resisting Arete, becuaswe I never could figure out where else the route might go. Maybe Dan Hare or Steve Levine can sort it out...
