Yours truly, mid crux photo by Tom Donnelly

Description 

Edge OTU is the bolted line on the left side of the southeast face. Start on the same block as for the Void, but lean left and clip the first bolt. The crux is really a sequence of balancy moves, leaving the block and passing the first bolt. Although the difficulty eases up a bit, there are several nice, delicate moves to be had on this short climb as you work past the remaining bolts to the anchor. To descend, walk off to the right (when facing the wall).

5 bolts, bolted anchor

Awkward and somewhat contrived at the crux as you can simply step off onto a boulder (see photo).

Hmmm. Not sure what difference that makes, other than as a rest. You still have to get back on the face and do the crux, if you want to continue up the route.
