Description 

Pull off the ground and climb through a short but steep overhanging bulge. After pulling the bulge, a short vertical face leads to chains.

Location 

This route is on the Headlight Point side of the gully that divides Headlight Point from Eastern Block. Head up the rocky gully until near the large wedged chockstone called the "Block of Doom". When looking up toward the "Block of Doom", Silent Service will be on the climber's left.

Protection 

bolts to chains

Jens,
My name is Nathan. I climbed your route yesterday and I thought it was really cool, really memorable. Im still psyched from it twenty four hours later. I just wanted to say Im glad to see that there is still development going on in this area, especially something so inspired as this.

Would this be the 3rd (or so) bolt line starting from the side of the wall (under the block of doom) and counting left, facing the wall? Looks like an easy start, then goes over a large overhang with 3 closely-spaced bolts, then there's an anchor few feet above the overhang on the vertical wall?

It's listed as the rightmost route here, but the two rightmost routes under the block of doom don't have the bulge that is in the beta so I figure those are not it.
Also there are more bolts seemingly above the low anchor so it's kind of confusing there.
