The third bolted line from the left. Start at the top of the loose gully. 5.9ish climbing past 3 bolts up to the horizontal break, then continue STRAIGHT past a steep, awkward bulge (crux). There seems to be a trick here, but I'll let you figure it out for yourself. Continue on easier ground to a 2-bolt anchor.
Bolts, supplemental gear for upper section (optional).

Call me crazy, but I couldn't find the second pair of anchors for "The Soul" and "The Gibbon." Luckily I had enough to just climb up and over. Did they get removed recently? And, the face farther right looks promising, anyone ever think of bolting some routes there?

I don't recall there ever being a second set of anchors for the Gibbon/Soul. I've always used the anchors atop A Route Runs Through It et al. or built a traditional anchor.
The face to the right has long been a top-rope (and referred to in guidebooks). There is a single bolt on top that can be combined with bushes or a 3-inch cam to make a top rope anchor.
