This venerable classic has been a regular stop on the warm-up circuit for years. As such, it is now severely polished, but still worth doing if you don't mind working a wee bit harder than usual for the grade. The rock is generally excellent, with a number of great pockets, and smooth crimps that are easy on the skin.
Stick clip the first bolt, and make cruxy moves off the deck to reach a decent jug at the second bolt. The difficulty eases above, but intricate moves between small pockets keep the pump going all the way to the chains.
On the far left end of the Killer Cave, beginning 5 feet left of Harvest Moon (which has ring bolts).
~8 bolts to 2 bolt anchor.

Can get very slick when in the sun between the second and third bolt. Good route with fun climbing to the anchors.

big moves to crimps and pockets with less than ideal feet, easier pockets towards the top really fun
