|Hemingway Buttress (East Face Right)
Do the crux roof of Head Over Heels, but head up and slightly right on the steep wall above. The climb finishes on a ledge system half way up the rock, with a walk-off descent. The route has fun moves past overhangs with excellent protection.
3 bolts, gear to 3", 2 bolt anchor/rap

Just clarifying - there are three bolts on this route, not two (as mentioned). One above the Head over Heels crux, one about 5 feet above the first bolt, and one above the final roof move. The next gear from the last bolt looks to be a ways out. If you traverse directly to the right from the last bolt, the route wouldn't be too scary getting to the next pro. If you head up and right from the last bolt, your next gear will be about 13 feet above the last bolt through pumpy terrain.
