|Manure Pile Buttress (aka Ranger Rock)
Between After Seven and C.S. Concerto lies this short face and crack. Delicate face climbing past 2 bolts leads to a nice 5.9 crack with reasonable pro. A small wire can be slotted before the first bolt.
2 bolts plus a light rack.

This thing is short and fun. Worth a go if you have a few extra minutes at the end of the day, or dare I say, want one of the softer Valley .10 ticks there is.

Use caution. Very slick on the left side. Gear is very thin at the start. Very fun stout 5.10. Worth doing!

There seems to be disagreement to how hard this route is. I dispatched with the 5.10 start pretty fast, but the upper crack took me a bit longer than I thought it would. The pro was resonable but took more than a casual glance to find.

Nice consolation climb is everything else is busy. Slick rock makes the bottom balancy and insecure. Climbing in the upper crack is great but over too soon.

I found this very hard. I OS'ed Jump For Joy and easily RP Haley's Comet after a slip, but the start of this shut me down. I was attempting it straight on and pulling super hard. In retrospect the only way I can conceive of doing it at a 10 grade would be tip toeing up the left edges and features to a right high step smear, gaining high right layback edge w/right hand with left palming down or using left edges for balance.
