Around and left from EBGB's is this excellent route that sees even less traffic than it's neighbor.
An undercut and bouldery start (very reachy) leads to high-quality face moves that end atop the EBGB's block. Originally done with a point of aid at 5.11a A0, the route was later freed. There is an anchor in the center of the block (same as for EBGB's) and the rap is off bolts on the opposite side of the formation.
6 bolts, anchors

I don't believe this route has been freed without a pile of cheat stones. On the first ascent, I brought some milk crates to stand on to drill the first bolt. Without cheat stones, you'll need the leaping abiltiy of Kobe Bryant just to jump up and latch the first handholds.

My experience on this route (BITD) confirms what Bob states. Even with the cheat stones, the route was wicked hard.
