|This climb no longer exists. The flake at the start fell off years ago, there is a 5.12c direct start farther right.|

Wow, this route really is like the regular route on Half Dome! Sorry to have missed your revelation Hanshan. Thank you!
Maybe instead of 5.12, just a new bolt ladder like Half Dome - it is a lot easier than the other east face routes, almost certainly no one has ever taken it to the true summit. Valley Giants might make the chimney fun too.
This photo with beta for Superdirect on the west side shows how hard it might be to climb to the highest summit.
