Kyle pulling the upper bulge on Under Siege.

Description 

More excellent thin face climbing with small crimps and sidepulls on slightly less-than-vertical granite. Similar in character to Happy Feet, this line begins with difficult, strenuous face moves with a crux between the 1st and 3rd bolt. Higher, a relatively easy lip encounter leads to more 5.10 face climbing to the anchors.

Location 

The second line of bolts from the left end of the Right Arrow. Also, two bolt lines left of Hostile Takeover/Happy Feet.

Protection 

Bolts. Stick clip recommended. The bolt locations are a bit weird at the start; you may want to stick clip the second bolt.

I ended up skipping a bolt on this one. Towards the top there is a bolt that is hidden over a bulge, I took what looked to be the easier line (left in a dihedral I think) and didn't see the bolt until I was above it. Seems like I would have had to really gone out of my way to clip it.

Stick clipping the second bolt is a great idea, and a yellow alien can fit in on the runout from the second to third bolt. This one keeps you on your toes every step of the way.
