getting lowered after leading Little Gem Diner
Start at left leaning crack. Work up the crack about 20 feet to a good stance, then straight up to a bulge with 2 cracks running through it. Use the left crack to pull over the bulge (crux), then climb straight up to the anchors (above a large ledge a few feet from the top).
150 feet to the left of the third class ramp, about halfway up the eroded dirt slope. Easiest to follow the main path past the eroded slope, then take second path (right) up the the start of this route. The path below Soweto and Hard Times is in much better condition.
Bolts at top for anchor. Can walkoff, eventually exiting using the third class ramp.
Can be top roped
Access to the bolts on top is easy. If you top rope, please build an anchor with webbing - do not top rope through the bolted anchor!

Per the guidebook, and what I saw there, you tackle the crux bulge via the LEFT of the pair of cracks.
