It took a while to figure out which route might be right of 'Tuckered and Fried', but only 2 routes left of 'Little John', because there are 3 routes between.
Eventually we settled on the conclusion that the left most of the uncertain routes was easier (Fatman and Robin), and the right route was harder (The Avenger). This route is 2 routes to the right of Tuckered and Fried.

Which anchor are you supposed to finish on? You can go left or right from the last bolt, or perhaps directly up (which I did for 20 feet or so though one more roof). Seems like another anchor could add more climbing, one more bulge, and leave it separated from the others.

The best of the 'new' routes here. Jugs through a roof for a crux, but I didn't find a crux down low as stated in the description.

We found this climb by counting two climbs right of Sheriff's Tariff (an obvious line up the white dyke). The second last bolt moves right of Tuckered and Fired then back left and shares the last bolt + anchors

Fun route, although a little confusing at the middle tier of the three roofs. There are two lines of bolts above the first roof. I was intending to climb T&F but moved back right which (I think) was Avenger. I clipped after I gained the roof, but clipping as you move from left to right is probably a better idea. I found the move to be a little harder than Merry Men. Very balancey as you're forced to push out with you left hand from below as you try to find something for your right.

The middle section has some great stemming moves once you reach the right-facing block. No hands!

Is this the same as Fatman and Robin? There are more routes listed than exist in this section....

I'm pretty sure this is the same route as "Fatman and Robin". The two route descriptions should be combined as one entry to avoid confusion.
