I had posted this under Polaris in 2011 because one of Tom T's pics of this route was listed there. now I'm thinking that Polaris is a different route to the right of desert shield...
this one is located just left of desert shield. Great route, the old book says unnamed, ? for grade and maybe 100'. I recommend a 70m rope to belay from the ground. Also, I thought it would be #2s to the OW but it would have been better to have #3 camalots instead. Take 1 - 2 new #4 camalots and a #5 if you suck at OWs like me (plus some other sizes as stated on the description).
This is a really good route that should get traffic. Someone might want to replace the slings on those drilled angles though. I would have but didn't bring extra webbing to the crag this time.

|i moved Tom T's description from 'polaris' to this route to give some more info. in particular, i think his gear beta and the note about having a stopper knot with a 60m are pretty helpful.|
