Up the gully right of The Black Wall. Cruise up a nice low angle face to a steeper dihedral and turn out of the dihedral to easier slab moves to the anchor. The crux is at the 6th bolt.

Location 

Starts in a gully right above a an old large down tree that has no bark. Rappel route to get off.

Protection 

6 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor

Decided to go left around final roof/bulge recently and discovered that doing so is a lot easier than going right - probably drops the grade to 10a/b or so. Also, going right is more in line with the bolts and appears to be the route setter's intended line - falling here is inconsequential as the bolt is right in front of you; falling while going left is not bad, but there's more of a pendulum if you do.

very fun route for those who find the majority of the Dungeon climbs just out of reach. The bottom and mid section are pretty easy (definitely like a 5.9 or so), then as you make your way up to the 5th bolt things start getting more in the 5.10ish area with the difficulty being a solid 5.10c if you go right at the 6th bolt. Can not say about going left there as I did not try not but based off where the anchors are located, left does seem to be the more natural line.
