From Mazama Rock by Burdo:
This route was bolted by an unknown party early in the area's development, but was seen as a forlorn, mangy character, due to unclean rock & inconsistent climbing. Burdo refurbished the route in 2007, making it a decent quality route which can be finished at the chains of "Karmic Relief". It is possible to continue the original line via a bouldery arete (10a/b) to a sling anchor, but this is not currently recommended.


From the Lost River Rd walk the main trail on a couple switchbacks to the first set of craigs on Prospector Wall. Scramble up the loose scree to the slightly better belaying area. Fifth route from the left (excluding the 5.6 on the lower short wall).


6 bolts.
Chains just to the right on the 10a route next to it. As Burdo states, it's not worth it to continue the original route up the arete -- the webbing on the sling anchor is worn & not confidence inspiring (causing this climber to downclimb to chains).

There are now bolts with chains at the top of the upper section, but you aren't missing too much if you skip it. Bottom section is actually pretty fun with some finger locks and can probably be lead on gear.
