Right side of this formation.

Description 

Start off about 20 feet to the right of Bone Along (the one one bolt route), go up the ramp and clip the first bolt about 15 feet up on the right side. To be honest, the bolt is camouflaged pretty well and in the sun, i didn't see it until i was on top of it. After that its smears and crimps to the next bolt, join the flared crack or don't and smear your way to the top. Great climb.

4 bolts, rap chains on top

Nice short route with thin moves on little edges or just face slaps. I thought the crux was the move getting into the little flared slot. 4 bolts instead of the original 2 makes this a casual and fun lead.
