Meatloaf cave/campsite (Alabama Hills) route info?

At the meatloaf campsite/cave in Alabama Hills, which is where you park for the loaf, hoodgie wall, and the surrounding areas, there is a bolted line that pulls out of the cave. You start by stepping off a boulder, work through a couple of huge, juggy huecos and I guess make some desperate move to pull the lip on bad holds and top out. It is severly overhung (at least 45 degrees?) and is blackened from decades of people having fires in the cave.

I can't find any information on this climb - or any information even suggesting that it exists. But it's bolted. There's an anchor. I'm not qualified to say what it goes at, but it must be like 5.13 or something. We top-roped it (unsuccessfully) by climbing up the side of it (a sketchy V1) and it was a blast.

Does anybody have any information on this climb?
