Pitch 1 is a long finger-locking corner (5.9).
Pitch 2 is an arch, reminiscent of Perry's Layback, only easier (10c) and gear protectable almost throughout. 2 bolts when it gets really wide at the top.
Here's a topo.
The whole climb from the base: Pitch 1 up the corner; pitch 2 up the arch.
A look from the belay atop pitch 1 at pitch 2.
But wait! Now more people will be right beside Java Jive and might want to do it... Jeremy turns another obscure area into a popular destination. Maybe the other routes will stay clean now.
p1 was still a bit wet but no big deal and the start of p2 had a few 'flaky' footholds, but they'll clean up in no time.
A #3.5 cam also works well at the start of p2.
It WAS quite reminiscent of perrys, and as Scrubber mentioned there is a good chance it will direct more attention to Java Jive.
Here's a pic of my beautiful girlfriend getting her undercling on!

more or less, yes (as noted on the topo). I believe that Hangup exits left at about 2/3 height on P1.So going by the Campbell guide topo it seems that the first 5.9 pitch of this route is the same corner climbed by Hangup? (Cousins/Sinclair 1972, FFA Campbell/Milward 1984)
