just before the crux of Thou Shalt Not Covet
Climb what was the start of The Coveted (5.11b), up an easy slab to a few undercling moves (that can seem tough till you get it right), out to the right and up a short, shallow corner.... Clip the chains, but remember to do another move or two to the top of the cliff (they are the best moves on the route, I think)....
The anchors were left low, so the ropes run smoothly....
Not in the guidebook....
Just right of Student Loan (5.11b) and left of Mr. Popular....
5 bolts to quick clips....

I agree with Mark's comment under Student Loan - The Coveted should be listed as a 'legit' route, with this one as a variation of the original.

Now 5 bolts. Due to people breaking their ankles falling onto the slab below, a bolt has been added at the top (stainless fixe glue-in) , so there is now no excuse not to get on it.

I climbed this roof problem having no idea what route I was on (the 2009 guidebook descriptions in this area are wicked confusing). Thanks to the boys on guard at MP for clearing up the confusion!
