Second pitch is the crux. Steep for Yosemite.

Yosemite - Remain in Light - 10/23-24/99 - Joel Ager

Joel and I finished the FA of Remain in Light, placing the
remaining bolts and Joel redpointed all the pitches.
It is between The Sequel chimney and Blind Man's Bluff, just
left of the Braille Book. We had started it in September.

Here is the route description, from Joel's web page:

------------
Remain in Light, 5.11a (J. Ager and C. Cummins, 10/99)

Quickdraws, optional 1.5 and 2.5 friends for p1, p4, and p5.

1. 5.7 The first pitch of the LH 5.7 variation start to
Blind Man's Bluff, 75'
2. 5.11a Up the overhanging wall R of the Sequel chimney. 7 bolts, 70'
3. 5.11a Up more steep rock to a stance. 6 bolts, 60'.
This pitch is more sustained than p2.
4. 5.7 Up less steep rock to a ledge. 2 bolts, 90'.
5. 5.4 Step left into a hand crack and climb it to the big ledge at
the top of the Braille Book. An optional 6th pitch would climb
the last, "5.4 knob madness," pitch of the Braille Book to the
top of the buttress.
Fixed anchors at the top of the first four pitches. All pitch lengths
approximate.
------------

It is another route (like Blinded by the Light) which may get most of
its traffic from people who hike up to do the Braille Book, but find it
is already too crowded with people.
