Description 

Climb up the nose of the slab. Ascend the slab up the center of the wall past flakes at mid-height. Continue up the bulge to a ledge and an anchor.

Eds. The length of the route is listed as longer, since using a the 2 anchor bolts and a 100' rope will not allow you to belay your second from the ground. It was originally listed as a 30' route.

Location 

This is on the Short Slab Wall left of the steep section.

Protection 

Standard rack. Two bolt anchor.

This looks harder from the ground than it really is.

Okay, this one is a slight mystery as to where it is.

Is this the line?

Pretty sure it is the second picture you posted, Leo. I also found the slab at the top awfully stiff for 5.6 or even 5.7. I would even go as far as 5.8+, but I might have missed something or been totally off route as well.

Did this for the second time today, and it is a better toprope than a lead. The gear is not great. It is adequate to protect against death but is a bit sparse in places.

Good looking pics, Leo.
