Start off on a high hold and pull onto face. Tackle the crux between bolts 2 and 4 by figuring out which pockets to use. Go to the ledge above the fourth bolt before clipping it. Rest on the ledge and then a couple bolts higher in the hueco that you can completely crawl into. 5.10 from the ledge to the top.
(Originally rated a 12b the route was down graded by popular consensus.)

I was only finding slopey unpleasantness up and right of the 4th bolt. I wish I'd read this first! At least bolts 3 and 4 are fixed gear (if this is indeed the climb I'm thinking of).

Slopey edges after a pockety crux, like charris said. The moves between bolts 2 and 4 are harder than any move on Super Best Friends.
