Is anyone aware of named mixed route(s) on the north face of Otis from Chaos Canyon?

I climbed something today. Three mixed/rock steps in fairly quick succession followed by moderate snow the rest of the way. There was a water ice option on the third step, but it was rotten at the bottom. I haven't done a whole lot of mixed, but I'll say two of the three steps felt harder than Dreamweaver from mid-May last year...

It's the left-most route in this picture. It's fairly deep in the canyon, but not right up against Chaotic Glacier.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
