|Ridge 2 aka Satan's Slab
This enjoyable, friction-y route ascends the left margin of the 4th section of Satan's Slab, climbing on and north (climber's right) of the blunt arete. The route reaches the summit ridge about 120 feet shy of the top.
666 could probably be done in 4 pitches (3 with a 70m) - there are various ledges and horizontal cracks along the route that can be utilized as belay spots. The first ledge has a tree and is about 140 feet out.
This route begins at the left (southern) edge of the 4th section of Ridge Two and, as mentioned above, climbs the southern aspect of the face and the arete to the summit ridge.
Standard rack, emphasizing smaller cams.
The route is pretty runout, but some horizontals, pods, and seams provide protection options. Wandering further north (climber's right) on the face will bring you to more opportunities for pro, but the position and climbing are better on the arete.

Not sure where the 5.6 on this would be. It was no harder than Enchanted Devil (5.4).
