Does anyone know anything about the two bolted slab routes between "Hemroidic Terror" and "Rings Around Uranus"? They seem to be in the mid 5.10 range. The left route has 2 bolts and the right has 3. The left route is a bit contrived and seems to have an easier variation skipping the second bolt and climbing straight up past the first bolt. The right route felt slightly harder than either variation on the left route.
