Description 

Start left of Ruby Slippers. Basically, compression problem with left hand on corner and right hand on side pull seam. Gaining the glassy slopey "ledge" to clip the second bolt is the crux!
At the 3rd bolt or so the route eases into nice face climbing.
At next to last bolt there is a thin bit of climbing and the head crux. Finish with a "harder move than you'd like" move to the anchors.

Protection 

8-9 Bolts and 2 bolt anchor.
