Thanks for the response, I will have to give it a try! It looks like a great line. Might not be till next season though now... almost time to break out the skis!
Cheers

I don't know the name of the route but it was put up by Lonnie Kauk and is around .11d. The crux is low and then it follows awesome pockets. Definitely a good addition to the cliff.
He also added the beautiful face above the parking lot. It's in Marty's guide as a project. Its called Giant Steps and is .13a and 5 star. Oct 12, 2010

Does anyone know anything about the route right next to the maltese Falcon? It looks like it could be a touch easier but just as beautiful. It is not in the Marty Lewis and John Moynier mammoth area climbs book. thanks Oct 11, 2010
