This is a good left-facing corner system on the left side of Scarface wall. Find the Classic Scarface and head left to a dark and shaded area of the wall on the left side. On the left is the right-facing Black Uhurhu and on the right is this left-facing Corner
It ascends the obvious crack through dark solid rock to fixed anchors. The crux for me was a bunlging between-hands-and-fists section, probably 2/3 up the route. I have small hands, so your individual experiance may be different.
This is a nice climb, overall. A basic Indian Creek dihedral, and a nice break from the typical thin corner.
2" to 3.5" heavy on the 3"

Where's Carruthers is actually the next route immediately left of Scarface. It ascends a straight-in crack in a corner that moves from tight hands to very wide hands near the top.

I think this climb is actually Black Uhuru.

was it a changing corner that starts left facing and then switches to right facing (change occurs right during a bulging section)? was it almost jet black rock? if so it is probably unnamed #2 in the bloom book.

Yep, Where's Carruther's is thin hands in a tight flare to a small ledge 30' up, then wide hands for another 30-40 feet. First climb left of Scarface.

If the climb in question is in fact Unnamed 5.10 #2 in the Bloom guide. Here are a couple pics of it. Tight hands down low, then hands #2s, and a couple 3's after the corner change up top.
