Actually two slab routes about the same.

Warning! Useful route description to follow:
Location - Pillar down and right from the big Poker Face Alice roof. Look for a little castle-turret thing to belay from.
Description - Both climbs share their final 3 bolts, but the left variation starts left of the crack splitting the base of the pillar above the turret, the right starts right of the crack. The left variant has better holds, but further apart, and you can deck if you blow it before the third bolt. The right variant has smaller, less positive holds closer together, but has better clipping stances, and you'll only deck if you blow the second clip entirely.
5 bolts for the left variant, 6 bolts for the right.

Thanks for taking the time to add a description Brian.
To the original poster, Alex:
After noticing this route posting, I glanced through some of your other MP route entries, and there is one consistent theme: they are lacking a decent route description and there are very few (if any) details regarding how to find the climb. Its great that your are entering routes into the MP database, but when you do so, try and take the time to add an entry that will be useful to the community. Otherwise you are just submitting place holders, which prevents someone like Brian from entering a more complete description.
