Description 

Start with some fingers in two pockets and make some bouldery moves. If it's raining, rest assure that wet streaks don't touch the good holds necessary to put this climb in the bag.

Location 

On the same wall as ReCooperAte but the left most climb before going all the way down into the ravine.

Protection 

8 Bolts to anchors

I'm confused about the start (and location) of this route. Is this the route just right of the right-facing corner to the right of the central ravine that divides this crag in two?

I didn't see the two pockets in the description and photo. I only saw a right-facing corner, a large undercling/hueco about 4 feet off the ground, and a rail/crimps maybe 10 feet off the ground.

Also, the first bolt I found is probably 20+ feet off the ground. In the route photo I see a bolt just a few feet above the climber's outstretched hand.

Edit: I just added a route called Bipolar. Maybe that's what I thought was this route.

After seeing your comment, David, I took a look at this route this past weekend. The route you added, with the very high first bolt, is indeed Bipolar. Zoonotic is the next route left of Bipolar. The "spook eyes" holds visible in the Zoonotic photo were obvious to us and a great identifier for finding the route. The "spook eyes" holes are about seven feet off the ground and my 5'5" wife could barely reach them to start the route.
