Description 

Start on the far right side of the big ledge at the base of Candlelight. Have the belayer clip an anchor bolt for Bobo's. Leave yourself (the belayer) about 10ft of slack so you can see your climber.
Climb out right off the big ledge over a small mogul and clip a bolt, up and right again, then straight up (5-6 more bolts) to an anchor. A great pitch.
Second pitch is not bad, but pretty easy at about 5.7 (5-6 bolts). It is possible to do another pitch and top out (no bolts).
This route was established Sept 12, 2003 - the day Johnny Cash died.

This climb can be extended by climbing the last 2 pitches of Bobo's Bonanza. These pitches wander up and left on mostly 5.5ish terrain with some climbing up to 5.7. The climbing is runout with 2 (old) bolts per pitch. It's worth it if you want some extra mileage and if you like playing "where's the next bolt?" in a sea of knobs.

To descend, rappel Shining (11d) with one 60m rope.
