I was flying my drone in Upper Dream Canyon...

...and I saw these routes on the Water Slabs that are not on MP.  I can only find two routes listed here on MP or in guidebooks; Mes Amis and Mary Lynn's Slab both on the far left side. We did a couple of bolted routes on a slab to the right in the 9/10- range, left one had a rusty old ring pin on the slab:

And we saw a couple more even further right. One looked a bit harder:

and the other looked 5.6ish up a wide, low angle slab to the far right. 

Anyone have any info on the routes on this rock?

Thanks!

If anybody knows, it's probably Jason Haas.

Ermagerd you were flying a drone!!1!11!!!

I have nothing productive to contribute, but a quick question, were they all bolted, or just cracks that look like they're climbable?

The four routes I described above are all bolted, I imagine you could piece together a trad line as well though it would involve some cleaning.

I don't actually drone, it was just a ploy to stay on the MP front page ;-) My earlier post got no responses.

Hahaha, cool - I'll be interested to take a look next time I'm up there.
