Ascend easy terrain past 3 bolts starting on a micro-flatiron. Then there is a longish reach around the 4th bolt. Dance right (cruxish), up, then left. Note, the 6th bolt leaves your top biner dangling partway over an edge, so I don't recommend falling on the 6th bolt. Perhaps a rounded hanger would allow threading a sling? The terrain eases up, and you gain the two bolt anchor.
This route currently leaves one a bit cautious pulling on flakes and trusting edges. This is adventure sport climbing.
Note, Claude indicated he felt the route clocks in at 8+. Per Claude, "it was named after a small extinct creature that managed to survive for a time during and after the era of the thunder lizards. There's even a picture of what it was thought to look like on Wikipedia." Thanks, Claude!
Per Bruce Hildenbrand: because of the distance between the 4th and 5th bolts, if the leader falls or blows the clip at the 5th bolt, they are looking at a 25+' fall onto a big ledge. Be careful!
