Description 

Short and tricky. Think hard before launching above the horizontal toward the first bolt; careless advance makes it very (very, very) difficult to safely clip the key bolt. If you do not get a solid stance, take the fall on your gear in the horizontal. Don't try pulling and clipping here, or you will meet the deck.
The climbing is brief but quite engaging; were it twice (or more) the height, it would be a classic.

Location 

At the (climber's) left end of the Jammer Ledge, behind an oak tree. This is the obviously-cleaned swathe with two bolts above a horizontal crack.

Protection 

Smallish C4s for the horizontal, or perhaps a largish C3. 2 QDs for the bolts.
