Koko on the thin finish.
To put some limits on the definition of the Industrial Buttress, and to differentiate it from the MBA buttress, we can call Forgotten Names the furthest route right on IB. I am guessing that ten routes will fall naturally on IB. Forgotten Names starts in the slot immediately right of Industrial Disease. It follows up the arete with a tricky entry move and some thin technical stuff that is decidedly more difficult than it looks.
Bring 8 draws and something for the double bolt anchor at the top. A long sling helps in the start.

Erik Fedor and I thought this harder than Industrial Disease (also 11c) which we had done just before. The first half is the same climb as Darker is Better (5.7) then take the face on the left for the crux moves.

Seems like I may have been a forgotten name here...I always thought this was 11d.

I think 11d is about right but only for one move. A good tick for someone breaking into harder 11s.
