The left end of the Lounge has a section of wall that looks just like a huge wave about to break. Here is Wave Goodbye. Hard technical balance and power combined make this route a brute. Unrepeated at this writing.

I really enjoyed the thin tech-y climbing at the start of this route but then bailed off the 5th bolt due to loose rock. There are a few big, (very) loose flakes, both to the right and left, and I couldn't find a way through the roof that didn't endanger my belayer.

It was late in the day, so I didn't make an effort to rap in and trundle the flakes, but it seems like this would be a good idea. If the rest of the route is as good (and hard!) as the beginning, it'd be a worthy project.
