The red line on the photo shows the route.

Description 

Two starting hands visibly chalked up, go up with a solid left hand roughly two feet up from the starting holds. Traverse to the right about 4 feet (first zig zag), then go up about two more feet with your right hand. The crux is towards the top, which starts off the second zig zag. Hit the crux with your left hand and traverse to the left roughly six feet. The last move is about a foot above that.

Location 

Roughly 20 or 30 feet to the right of "Standard Route". The starting hands are pretty much in the middle of the cave like structure.

Protection 

Two trees at the top for an anchor.

"rather forced" or AKA contrived, similar to 1/2 of his self published lines

I think claiming an FA is a bit of a stretch on this and doesnt take into account the history of the area. I've removed the FA info for now and agree this seems like a bit of a stretch for a new route.

Yeah, that's totally understandable about the FA, I suppose I should have left it blank. Anyway, I found the route one day with my roommate and decided to pop it up here because I didn't see any routes this far to the right of the face on here.
