My best guess to the line of Low Pressure Zone

Description 

Start the same as for The Falconer but move left on face holds to obvious ledge 20 feet up. Clip a bolt and make bouldery moves to next ledge. Reach high to clip another bolt and work through crux stem boulder problem. From here use micro cams and nuts to work into obvious splitter that goes from tips to fingers, hands, to fists and eventually arches left to blocky terrain and the rim. The rock on this route is quite good, but there is a lot of lichen. I scrubbed the crap out of it but it's still in need of a few more cleaning sessions.

Above is original description from FA party recovered via wayback machine.

Location 

Just left of The Falconer. 20-30 feet right of the large juniper at the base of the wall.

Protection 

Doubles-Triples in the small stuff. Medium to micro nuts(offests useful), doubles from .5-4 and a #5. Runner and a couple draws if you got em.
