Begin right of The Importance of Being Ernest
(10c) on a small ledge. The crux involves technical and powerful moves past the first bolt. Move left to a corner and up passing three more bolts over a bulge (10+). Then move left to the anchors.
Alternatively, after the first bolt, a two bolt variation goes straight up over a bulge (10+) and then takes a sharp left to the anchors. This climb, also by Bob Gaines, et al. has been named The Bullfighter (5.11b)*.
Four bolts and a small cam. A 0.1 microcamalot (or equivalent) and brass protect opening moves if the first bolt is not stick clipped. The route shares the two bolt anchor with The Importance of Being Ernest.

Crux right off the deck (20' up on a boulder), with protection that is hard to gauge.
