Incredible area! The climb was a little hard to find without much information, but is a lot of fun.
Walk up the hill until you see a big cairn marking a fork in the trail. Head left, down across the wash and onto a trail that leads you back around to the front of the wall. When you cross a small field of talus, turn uphill and follow that trail to base of the route. There are three closely bolted routes along the right side of the wall. The right-most climb is another multi-pitch route, totally independent of this route. The two routes to the left share anchors for P1 of this route. I recommend line on the left, it is the easier of the two with awesome holds and movement(starts next to the tree)

P1: 5.8 20m
P2: 5.8 30m
P3: 5.6 30m
P4: 5.9 25m
P5: 5.8 30m climbing through first two bolts was tough, gets good right afterwards
P6: 5.10a 25m After topping out onto the ledge, I missed the anchors and kept walking up the ledge until I got to(and climbed) the final pitch of Simple Truths.

Rap the route with a single 60m rope

Good description above by Emerson on how to find the climb. Start just to the left of the tree. Can't miss it.

Climbed this with Dan D. on 1 April. Super fun, and mostly casual. A couple of notes:

Most pitches are fairly short, and can be linked easily. However, bring some long runners, as this is quite the wandering route. Most of the pitch lengths seemed much shorter than what was mentioned above. I thought the 4th pitch was the most physically demanding, while the 6th was more technically difficult. I'd break down the grades as follows:

Pitch 1: 5.8 (very short)
Pitch 2: 5.7
Pitch 3: 5.5
Pitch 4: 5.9+
Pitch 5: 5.8
Pitch 6: 5.10-

Great route--could be a good warmup for some of the harder adjacent multis.

In the T. Goss guidebook and Misty's Limestone Bible, this route is called "Office Party". It is the 2nd route from the right on the wall. The furthest right route (in the Goss book) is called Mystery Companion (5.10a...although I though it was a bit harder than 5.10a). In Misty Murphy's Limestone Bible, she has Office Party correctly, but does not have the Mystery Companion route listed. That being said,....the route is super cool and the whole area is fantastic. The route is not Grade only takes a few hours to do;..the pitches are short, the protection and belays are all bolts, and the raps down the wall go very quickly.
A Grade III perhaps.
