|Claim Jumper Wall
Start up an easy face past a bolt to gain a low-angled slab with a finger crack. Somewhat runout but easy moves (optional 1" gear here) up the slab end below a steepening wall. Punch up the steep face above using creative body english to reach a somewhat deceptive and crimpy crux before pulling onto a finishing slab that guards the anchors. Somewhat contrived at the crux but fun movement nonetheless.
Scrappy appearances aside, this climbs quite well and as such deserves to see a bit more traffic.
Leftmost route on the wall starting about 10' left of Lady Luck.
5 bolts, chain anchors

Better than it looks, but still pretty sad as far as route. The crux at the top is quasi interesting, until you find out you can go either two feet to the left or right onto easy ground. Straight up is hard and forced, but hey, you're here anyway and it's free.

Not the best of routes, but a fun diversion nonetheless. It's possible to avoid the crux by climbing around it but you'll only be cheating yourself of some fun moves.
