There are several unreported routes on the south side of the west Penguin. One is on the arÍte and the other around to the right on the face. The arÍte looks like maybe 8 and the face maybe 9 or harder? We didn't try either one given the lack of info and we were just warming up for the day - they both look like nice routes.

Not sure if you see the routes listed for the West Penguin but these are the "unreported" routes you speak of....'Stem Cell Research' (.10a) and 'My Little Lab Rat' (.10b). Give them a try before you eyeball rate them from the ground.
