|The Dark Side
This is a better route than Enchanted Porkfist (IMHO) and no where near as much traffic. That being said, I must also say that Enchanted Porkfist is a superb route as well.
To find this route, hike into the Dark Side Canyon, and make your way to the Question of Balance Pinnacle. Just to the right of the Pinnacle lies a pair of routes on beautiful, black rock. The left route of these is TCOT.
Gingerly creep your way up the face on thin technical holds. It is fairly sustained. At the top, you will run into a crack that is a bit awkward. You might find this kind of hairy if you don't bring a small cam or two. The last 15 feet (for me anyway) was a bit harder than it looked. Have fun!!
6 bolts and anchors. You might want to bring a small cam or two (#0.5 Camalot or so) for the final crack to the anchors.

Good climbing but poorly bolted.

Have a 0.5 purple Camalot or a yellow Alien/yellow Metolius for the top.
