Description 

Scorched Earth Defenses(5.10d)trad straddles the arete and utilizes some of the overhung face features.

Diesel(5.11-) starts on the face cliff right of Burn Signals(5.10) and cliff left of Scorched Earth Defenses(5.10d). Make your way up the face and climb direct to pull the overhung 'ear' ledge and continue direct to the top. This is a TOP ROPE route and is very sustained and great for training purposes. It is meant as a fun, hard variation. Get some!

Location 

Direct line between Burn Signals(5.10)sport and Scorched Earth Defenses(5.10d)trad.

Protection 

Top Rope off of the Burn Signals anchor.

Bolted Chains (two opposing quickdraws)

I'm sure there are any number of ways to get from the bottom to the top, but I don't think each of those variations warrants an entry in the route database. There are certain descriptors here that lead me to believe this is one of those. 'Avoid the arete' 'Don't climb too far left or too far right' are a few that raise flags for me.
