This route is listed as Unnamed KM #8 in the Cater guide, 3rd edition. This climb has some interesting moves. Climb straight up the face, wondering left and right a bit to piece it together, aiming for the roof with a horizontal crack in it. When you reach the roof, head left, underclinging your way to the bolt above the roof. From here, traverse a bit left, mantle up, and then traverse back right. Straight up to the shuts from here. A few long draws are helpful in reducing drag. Some of the bolts could have been placed better to reduce the drag. There's a couple suspect blocks along the way, but you can easily avoid them.
This is the left most bolted line on the Seven Eleven Wall.
8 bolts, shuts. (Cater guide, 3rd ed. lists 7 bolts)

This route would have gotten three or more stars from me but for the fact that the lower half of the route is almost all on very tenuous feeling rock. In fact, one bolt (third or fourth) is drilled into a detached flake which itself is just fixed by tension. Definitely wouldn't want to fall on that one. I didn't let my girlfriend second this one.
Summary, great moves on suspect rock. Wouldn't recommend due to safety.
