This is the longest route in the cave that is not a link up. Mostly very good holds. Climbs more like a Compound route at Maple Canyon than a Choss Cave route. Climb up to the low horizontal break, then past some glued pockets. The crux is between bolts 4 and 5 linking side pulls and undercling flakes. After that, bomber jugs and fun climbing to the finish to its own anchor about 10 feet above the anchors for RX. Very fun moves, although it is currently very dirty. I don't think anyone has been on this in years. It is now fixed as of 6/2016, so get on it, and have some fun while helping to clean it up!

Update: Found the original topo for the cave. This line is in fact Cow Belly, however the original rating was 12d/13a. I would tend to agree.
