New Routes in Owens River Gorge?

I'm trying to identify a sport route in Owens River Gorge, located on the warm up wall. The route looks brand new and is not mentioned in the 10th edition of the guidebook. It is located between Welcome to the Gorge and Clip Jr., and is marked by a "9" (assuming for 5.9 which seemed appropriate, although it is also a 9-bolt route) written in chalk at the base. This is a very fun route, beginning in a short crack before working to face. I would recommend it to anyone at the gorge looking for an enjoyable time.

The problem remains, however, that I cannot find it listed anywhere. If anyone has any information on what the route is called, I would appreciate your input. Thank you.

Thought that thing was kind of a squeeze job.

Tai or Todd at Wilson's might know.
