This is sort of the indirect start to Catwoman (or Catwoman is the direct start to this...whatever). Begin to the right of Catwoman and left of Willard. Make much-more-difficult-than-they-look moves up and left to a very slopey shelf. Make a burly stand-up move onto the shelf (crux) and latch the obvious juggy flake. From here traverse up and left to the tricky mantle finish of The Joker.
This is kind of a one move wonder, but with the sustained, slopey, 5.11 climbing below the crux, it is a surprisingly pumpy route. Good climb, but not nearly as good as the other classics on this crag.
5 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor shared with The Joker.

Climbing the arete slightly right of the crimpy crux makes it 12a.
