|Does anyone know how hard the route to the left of Shady Boy is? I have not done it, but I wish I knew what it is.|

I could be wrong, but I'm trying to clarify for everyone (or the 3 people who actually trek up here).
The main wall has three bolted lines. Shady Boy is left and Shady Girl is on the right. The middle line is a variation of Shady Girl that climbs 4 bolts before it joins Shady Girl. I would say this is the hardest of the three. It's not listed here, does anyone know a name or rating?
There is also another bolted line about 50 feet left of Shady Boy. Also not listed here.

|The middle bolted line (Shady Affair) has the most difficult start. I would rate it 11-.|

The easiest approach might be:
walk east from the parking until you reach a 40 MPH sign on the north side of the road. Scramble up the hillside to the cliff near the base of Lockjaw.
Follow the cliff base west, with one more annoying steep uphill dirt scramble to reach the area around Cobra.
Continue west more easily along the base to reach the Shady Boys and Girls.
Be aware that while initial cruxes are ok, the upper slabs on these western routes aren't that shady in July!
It may be reasonable to approach more directly to the western end of the crag, but we didn't see any hint of a trail.
