I am "The Decider" says GWB. Well, that is another demonstration of just how well our Prez speaks English! I know immigrants both legal and illegal who would not make such a grammatical error! Is there anyone out there still like this guy?
Mantle past the first bolt on steep ground, dance through some thin face, take a break on a small ledge, side-pull up more face and crank a small roof at the top! Very Cool!
Look for the climb just right of Persistent Vegetative State.

As mentioned with the route to the right, The Decider also needs to clean up a tad. That should happen with traffic. You may want a long sling at the 8th bolt as you traverse left and then back right to the final roof. It has a two move crux and is not too demanding above or below that point. Not the same quality rock as the new routes to the left (BA & BG).

The good rail just below the first bolt is a tad hollow. Consider clipping the first bolt prior to cranking on this hold.

Insecure, committing move past the 7th bolt and a difficult 8th clip. Don't blow the clip or you'll hit the flake you were standing on at the 7th bolt. At the upper overhang, it's easier to go around to the right than straight up.
There are 11 bolts on the route.

So-so climbing. Not bad, not great- just mileage.

I thought this was a fun, casual route. Moderate climbing with a couple spots that are easy 10ish and well protected. This would be a good route for someone breaking into the 10 range in CCC.
As others have said, yard on that rail below the first bolt at your own risk. That block of rock isn't always going to be there.
And, it wouldn't be a bad idea to put a long or extended draw on the bolt just before you get to the roof. I didn't and found myself dealing with quite a bit of rope drag.
