There's an additional route between Filet of Sole and Testosterone Crack. Two bolts are visible from the ground, but presumably some gear is typically used between the bolts. I didn't climb it, so I don't have enough info to add it as a route directly. It starts in a dihedral, then onto an arete with features. It's about 8 ft to the right of Filet of Sole, but left of the big offwidth cracks that are ~ 5ft and 12 ft to the left of Testosterone.
