This route climbs the arete just left of the 5.8 dihedral finish to the last pitch of Over the Hill/Emerald City/Over and Out. In the picture of Rincon Wall on this website, this is the last arete on the left, visible just to the left of the 5.9 finger crack/5.8 dihedral finshes to Over the Hill, etc.
Begin by climbing a steep wall (5.10+) right of the arete heading for a stance on the arete proper. From that stance climb up the arete (crux) to easier terrain and the top (tree belay).
At this time, since bolts are most likely required to protect the climbing, the route is a top rope.

This is a new route in Eldorado Canyon up on Rincon Wall. At present, the route is done as a toprope as bolts would be needed to protect it on lead.
