This route is listed as B&C in the new guidebook. Start in the middle of the face, behind the large pine tree. Work up the face and the right crack of a double crack system. While this line has a lot of face climbing, it also yields quite a lot of crack technique and several nice ledges for resting. Continue working the crack until it runs out on a ledge. Work up a right-facing dihedral to gain a large anchor ledge. Rappel to descend.
This route is on the face right of Shady Character.
8 bolts, bolt anchor.
Getting into it on Tuff Shed.

Fun route, felt more like 5.8. The new D'Antonio guide seems to have a bunch of the routes in this area in the wrong location by one route (has B&C as the corner to the left of this route).

I'll agree with Slim on this. Much closer to 5.8 than 5.10.
