On the far left side of the pedestal that is used to access the notch between the Thumb and the Hand is a deep, black, loose water groove. Love Line is the route just left of the water groove. First bolt should be easy to spot.
Pitch 1; 5.10c R Technical crux is between 4th and 5th bolt. Getting to the 6th is a little heady. Getting to the 7th bolt (way up and a little right) is the meat and potatoes of the pitch (overhanging .9+ on big holds). The 8th bolt is up and left and a little hard to see. Finnish on ledge with rap rings.
Pitch 2; 5.10b R Follow the four bolts that traverse left from the left side of the belay ledge. 5th bolt is straight up and hidden use a long runner on it. 6th bolt is almost dead left and also hard to spot, but on easy climbing. 7th bolt is left and up near some large blocks. Pull the bulge (.10b) and veer right clipping the fixed nut. Climb easy ground up and left to a bolt near some basketball sized cobbles. Climb to summit on steep 5.6 slinging knobs. Two bolt anchor at top.
Descend as you would The Salathe Route.
