50 feet left of Dripwire is this excellent slab route. Make some long moves to moderate terrain. Pull the bulge and get your face game rolling. If you TR this route unclip the 2nd from the anchors to prevent rope drag.

Hmmm.... this one claims to be 50 feet left of itself as well....

I did this one on Saturday October 12th, in the afternoon. It's a pretty fun route that could use a little more traffic to clean up. The height-dependent move at the bottom is still V6 (a one move .12c) if you have a 6'1" APE, but the upper crux isn't harder than .11d. Main thing that detracts from the route is that you can also easily traverse right and then back left to go around the bottom crux. Pretty fun face climbing otherwise. I'm not sure why the new guidebook calls it a project if it was done in 2006. -Owen Bissell

Umm, I got thru the crux at the 4 th bolt by back stemming the tree. Some other hard stuff for us 5'8" and under guys. Otherwise this was fantastic.

seeing someone post on this route surprised me. but the biggest surprise was its been almost 10 years since we worked that side....holy shit, we are old....yeah the bottom is height dependent along with a low % move or you need crimping skills much greater than i had at the time. the top is a blast if i remember right and worth pulling or stemming past the bottom crux just to climb it and get the view.
