The Killer Toupee

Not to be confused with "Cellulite District," this is the unbolted and wider dihedral directly to the left of this line.
A stiff, finger lock 5.10b crux start gets you to a small ledge and the beginning of a twin crack system in a dihedral. Easy face moves combined with hand jams and stems move up to an overhanging upper crux. Good jamming technique rewards the crack practitioner.
At one time a trad line with cold shut anchors, this route now sports all bolts.

Found no loose rock on this the other day. Stiff moves off the ground but it's worthwhile for the upper corner.

There now seems to be a route that climbs the north face/arete. It is right next to Common Crimp but not the bolted crack. I am guessing it is new?

The arete route has been around for a while. Cactus Pad, 11a. Ok climbing but a lot of hollow plates and loose/brittle flakes. Bolts are a bit far apart, given the probability of a hold breaking.
