The belay (according to the topo) is actually the ...
Pitch 1: Climb a series of discontinuous cracks that start on the far right side of the slab. Clip 3 bolts as the cracks end (10+). Optional hanging belay out left with bolt + gear.
Pitch 2: Take cracks out right to top.
This line is on the large, mostly unbroken slab that constitutes the right section. The line sits on the far right side of the slab, just before the blocky cracks of Grody Coyote.
Small and Medium gear.

Great climb, a bit spicy, classic GM route.

I agree, a great climb. Some really cool moves through the sustained crux. One of my favorites on the right section. Watch out for the large mostly detached flake by the discontinuous cracks.

I have traversed all the way to the Bleak Streak ledge when the upper crack exit was wet and icy. You can clip the top bolt on Cactus Picker en route. Scary leading or following.

Great route. Can be done in one pitch with a 70 as long as last bolt is extended.
