Description 

Clip the poorly located first bolt standing on the ledge and then move up passing horizontals to a high 2nd bolt while looking at a fall back onto the ledge. Higher interesting balance moves up sloping edges and incut plates culminate in a cruxy topout as you palm the rounded top. Good movement on this despite it being so short.

A slightly harder and better protected variation to this is to climb Jim Beam Arete to it's third bolt and then cut right on jugs to join this route at it's 3rd bolt (5 total).

Location 

Just around and right from Jim Beam Arete starting off a ledge.

Protection 

4 bolts, bolted anchor

Until the 1st bolt on this is moved consider this "R" rated as you'll hit the starting ledge if you come off before the 2nd bolt.

Getting to the second bolt isn't so bad since you can pretty much walk up to it on a ramp. It is bolted in a silly manner but not really all that unsafe.
