This route mostly climbs to the left of an obvious shallow dihedral. It starts where a small shelf is two or three feet off the ground, goes straight up 15 feet or so past the first two bolts, then breaks slightly left to stay outside the dihedral (the third bolt is at the left of the start of the dihedral).
The climbing is mostly pockets and jugs with small edges for feet. It is quite steep with at least one slightly overhanging section.
The crux for me was between the 4th and 5th bolts when the pockets disappear temporarily and you're left hunting for edges.
This is the 2nd-to-the-right-most bolted line on the west face of Hard Rock (where the hard stuff is - as opposed to the south-west face and south face).

This was a great climb! At the 4th/5th bolt you can either go straight up through the dihedral or traverse left a few feet to juggier, easier climbing.
