The route is directly to the left of Coyote Ugly. The first bolt is above the crack starting down low and left traversing to the right. Guide book says 10a, I say 10c. An extremely scary loose and difficult awkward route. Smash links and good bolts at the top however. My least favorite route at Pinnalces so far. VITICEPS: First bolt is very high (beyond a stick clip's reach). Although it is fairly easy climbing getting to it, a fall nearly guarantees an injury. Optionally, you could protect the thin crack prior to the first bolt. Guidebook says .10a/b, after climbing it twice, I agree it should be .10c due to a few moderate crimpers beyond the third bolt.
