Description 

I didn't find this route to be very nice, rather a bad representation of the climbing to be found here. Maybe I just wasn't in form, but I thought the holds felt slightly slopey and somewhat unreliable. The 1st bolt is already somewhat high, and then you climb well above it to reach the second bolt. Looking down at the 2nd bolt will surely point out why, as the ground-fall potential looks very real. Clip the 2nd and proceed up to a sling. "Top out" and climb a long ways through easier terrain, then climb slightly up an overhang to clip the last bolt and thank God you didn't fall from this clip position. Head up the overhang on jugs to the anchor.
The name (Tombstone Way) is fitting since if you fall at the 2nd or 4th bolts you're going to be in serious pain.

Location 

The furthest route to the left.

Protection 

3 bolts, 1 sling + pigtail anchor
