Isn't this route you are referring to actually called "Swallow," originally a trad line with top rope anchors before being bolted in 2012? If so, it is also not the "first bolted route to the left of Ajax and 409," there is the 5.11 "Kip to a Handstand."

Almost right Russell. Swallow is a trad line that goes up the same dihedral, but then you pull the crack out the right side of the roof to the Kip anchors. Wizard Sleeve traverses out the left side of the roof and continues with some more face climbings, until it finishes at its own anchors.
