Looking for beta on the towers just north of Shark’s Fin in Alabama Hills. There are two routes that I could find: one on the eastern tower with a sick roof and another on the west tower that looks like it goes at a 5.7-5.8. Anyone know who put up the routes and what they go at?

the "sick roof" is most likely Cecil, named after the lion since the formation has a lion~esque silhouette from the right angle.  I think its around an AL hills 11+, the top is very sharp and grainy, but your protected by a massive bolt.  don't know the name of the 5.8.

Thanks! Shocked the routes aren’t recorded on here since the backdrop of LP Peak is just as good as the Fin.
