This route has the same start as "Stand Your Ground". Climb 8 feet to small ledge then traverse left. Climb on following the bolt line keeping bolts on your right. 3 Horizontals take gear well. After the 3rd horizontal, step right of the bolt line to the top.

Variation FA by Tom Lane.
Starts 4 feet right of wide crack in a right facing corner, 15 feet left of Stand Your Ground. Look for the only knee level toe hold on the blank face.

I clipped the first bolt from the SYG crack (i.e. the normal start) then climbed the 5.9 Variation off the ground. It's a bit reachy and one of our group had to jump to get to the horizontal 10-12' up. From there it's possible to traverse right to that first bolt, but the swing would be pretty serious if you fall before getting there. Of course we all tried a "directissima" start directly to the bolt - no success. Overall a really terrific route with some elegant face climbing.

Also - up on the top 1/4 of the wall, there's a black thin seam between this route and SYG. It's a good 5.10 exercise to do before you pull your rope.
