Description 

Time Bandit is the bolted line to the right of "Edge of Time". It has a slightly awkward start, then it eases off a bit until you reach the proper crux about at about 40' which follows a bolt to the right through a polished section of rock. I found the line to be a bit contrived, as a more natural weakness presents itself to the left to avoid the crux and meet up with the Edge of Time anchors.

Protection 

6 bolts and 1 piton to a 2-bolt anchor.

This is a pretty sweet line. The piton after the 2nd or 3rd bolt is pretty much useless, but it is fairly easy terrain to navigate. The route does seem a bit contrived as there is an easier way to the top that follows the bolt line (probably 5.8), though there is a nice lockoff move back to the right if you do decide to cheat out left.
