The route is fairly consistent on large hold without a definitive crux.
Slightly uphill to the left of Little Hitler's. The route starts between two trees, moves slightly right and then up the face.
6 bolds to chains.

Great fun, lots of ways to go play here. Be careful if it has rained recently this area does not get a lot of direct sunlight, so the deeper cracks will stay wet for a while, and you'll need to use the ledges (and a few jugs) on the arrete instead.

I second what Greg said, lot of ways to do this route, much more fun than your typical 9 sport route. If you have been strictly face climbing sport it *might* seem tougher for the grade. It's not a splitter crack climb, but the occasional jams make it much easier.

There is a crux up high by the last bolt, which has a significantly bent hanger.

Every inch of this thing protects with gear im curious why it was bolted.

The last bolt is badly bent and very loose. The anchors (two stacked-washer bolts with only two chain links on one bolt and two scarily thin quick links on the other) are also not very confidence inspiring. Replacing these would be a great service for an otherwise awesome climb.
