Description 

pretty much cruxless. I guess it would be turning the dogleg.

Location 

easily visible from the parking lot, this route is the obvious dogleg crack on the west end of the north face.

Protection 

medium to 1 large cam.
two-bolt anchor

route length approx 70 ft after the upper leftward dogleg tops out at the big perched boulder

where exactly is the stated "two-bolt anchor" located? no topside bolted anchor in sight as of 4/20/2017, not around the perched boulder, not higher up on the sloping summit. saw gray sling around a sketchy chock rock wedged in at the top of a flared crack under the east side of the perched boulder. long webbing could be fixed around the west underside of the perched boulder for a solid rap sling anchor, for others who might want. ended up just downclimbing How About A Date, Baby?
