In between the 3rd and fourth bolt.

Description 

This route is on the lower face. This is the furthest left and the hardest of the fours lines here. The line starts steep, but the crux doesn't come till about the third bolt. There is a small scar between the third and fourth bolt, but it is big enough for a 1.5 - 2" cam.

Walk off to the right, and enjoy the other three lines.

Protection 

Six quickdraws should do it.

There is a new route left of Howler which has 6 bolts up two parallel water grooves at the top. Howler, aka Old 55, starts in the middle of a big ledge alcove thingy about 30' off the ground, it climbs the steepest part of the wall.
