For the love of god, could someone familiar with this area please sort these routes left -- right! Got there today and let's just say alphabetical isn't ideal. May 13, 2015

It took a bit of doing, but I think I have the routes on the lower tier in order from left to right:

UNKNOWN ARETE (5.8) — 10’ left of New Hips Corner
NEW HIPS CORNER (5.5) — 10’ left of Unknown 5.8
UNKNOWN (5.8) -- 100' left of Pillar Talk, 10' right of New Hips Corner
LUCKY CHARMS (5.7) -- 5’ of Senior Moment
SENIOR MOMENT (5.5) — face to the left of Pillar Talk
LITTLE BLACK BOOK (5.4) — corner left of Pillar Talk
PILLAR TALK (5.7) -- tall white pillar, easy to spot from a distance
SLEEPER (5.9) — face to the right of Pillar Talk
HAWK EYE (5.5)— face to right of Sleeper
FRUIT LOOPS (5.6) — 100’ right of Pillar Talk

N'PLUS ULTRA appears to be well to the left of the above group according to the photo in the Handren book. Mar 21, 2016
