This route follows an arete or edge to the left of a big crack. The moves are pretty juggy for most of the way but there are a few tricky ones if you stay out on the extreme edge. To the left is a flatter face that has some thin moves on it as well. At the top you can go right or left. Left takes you up a semi long sloper with some thin moves and right takes you under an overhang and up the slab of number Three.
You can also stay to the right or in the crack and then top out on the right sloper under the overhang.
It's on the left side of the lowers and out on the obvious arete between One Alpha and Three (duh). I'm not sure if there is an Army number painted on this one.
Top rope off the Army cable and anchors above. There are plenty of bolts to lead the route as well.

I'd say this one is probably 5.6ish. There's one move moving up a slab that's a little bit harder for new climbers.
Definately one of the best routes at the lowers, but that's not saying much.
I don't know where the "PG13" came from. If anything, this route is way overbolted. You can reach the third bolt from the ground.
