Maybe that left most route is "Buckys on the Road Again"... seemed hard for 5.9+. Rated 11b in the Strassman guide and listed as a TR. Maybe it got bolted? I'll check it out, but I think you are right. May 25, 2016
Russ and I visited Hideout West today. There is an error in your Hideout description. The middle route is Powerplay. Look at the picture in the Croft/Lewis guide. It is clearly right of the leftmost route going over the overhang. We led Whippersnapper (agree with the 5.7 rating) and then tr'd Powerplay. Do not agree with the 5.8 rating. Russ and I have done many 8s and 9s in the Hills this spring and this was much harder.

Did not try the left route, looked too hard. It may be a Myles Moser route, It has his trademark bolt straight up into the roof of the overhang. May 22, 2016
