Can anyone tell me about the routes to the right? May 23, 2015

Does anyone know what this route to the right of early start is? It's unfinished for sure.... Top out and there is nowhere to go. Also, the first bolt is in the dead tree? What the hell?

A guidebook by Tim Nottingham is for sale at the Bag and Pack shop in Avon. Great book. Many more routes than you would realize. Mar 14, 2012

Could you be a little more descriptive to help identify the routes? I have been up there at least 15 times, yet from the descriptions you have entered, I have no idea which routes you are talking about. Oct 26, 2011
