Ben low on Lithium.

Description 

Start on left end of The Entertainer ledge, climb right facing small corner/flakes (crux) and arete with crack to bolted anchor.

I believe you might need/want to rappel down to the anchors to setup a TR. Please do not rappel directly off trees, build an anchor on the tree and clean it later. A directional on the top bolt helps reduce swing.

Location 

Right of Valium, on the right side of the main face (right most of two bolted lines) below a bolted anchor.

Protection 

Bolts

If you have this route dialed 10a may seem good but going for a first time redpoint 10a seems abit sandbagged, there are some devious/slopey/small you don't want to be on for too long type holds.
