Description 

Start up obvious ledge to your left until you get out of the trees (depends on time of year). Move up to your right through and finish on the slab. Top out slab is unprotected. Bring walkie-talkies or set up rope communication; like many of the routes here you can't hear due to the freeway, and the top out here is blind when leaves on the tree.

Location 

Left of GS-10. Downhill from Endless bliss on the dirt bench. Directly after the first metal pipe in the trail, but before the second.

Protection 

11 bolts to chain

Fun and worth doing at least once on lead. Followers risk some bigger pendulums at the beginning ramp (first ~3 bolts), so they should be a confident 5.10 climber. You can't really easily keep a top rope on this because of the wandering nature of the route (it goes back up right again after the leftward ramp at the start), so I would not recommend this one for parties larger than two. The suggestion about the rope communication is spot on, and look out for that tree when setting up a rappel...try to toss down instead of out :)
