Just to the right of Animation aka Jaycene's Dance . Follow a set of discontinuous cracks (optionally through a roof) and continue up to the nice cracks to the top of the cliff. There are a set of nice boulders at the top of the climb to set up a belay. The roof is hard at 5.10a or so, but can be avoided by heading right.

Descent Options:

You may choose to rappel from tha animation anchors.

Fun route. You have to jump to get to the good holds above the roof.
