I did this route on May 31, 2001 with J. Meir. I strongly suspect it was climbed many times before, but I cannot find any info. For lack of a name, I refer to this route as "Feathers," as it is just past "Wingtip."
Approach as for Wingtip, but continue to scramble up past the start of Wingtip about 15 additional feet. There is a hanging, left-facing dihedral some distance above you. Climb up and right on moderate face to enter the dihedral, and then climb the dihedral to the top. This is about 10' left of Wingtip, and is at a similar left-leaning angle. The crux is reasonably protected 5.8+ in the upper section of the dihedral.
The route is fun but mighty short.
Standard rack or TR from the left-hand edge of the ledge above Wingtip.
