A steep climb up the left (west) side of a prominent arete. Some may find the first bolt redundant, but don't bust your head on the boulder behind you. The beginning is easily the crux, and although it doesn't last long, it's not easy. The arete itself, and anything right of it, is OFF ROUTE. When you are ABOVE the fourth bolt, turn the arete and finish on the last 3 bolts of D.D.M.
This route is immediately left of the steep arete that separates the Bivi Wall from the Swallow Wall. Directly behind the start of the route is a substantial boulder (watch your head if leading!). You must rap off this one: you won't want to retrieve your slings if you lower off the anchor, and you can't walk off either.
7 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor. The last 3 bolts and the anchor are shared with "D.D.M."
